Armando Evangelista did not hide his dismay at the defeat in the reception against Paços de Ferreira (0-1), in a match of the 28th final of the League, and he also left a review on the arbitration of Rui Costa.
“It’s a film that repeated itself… At home, in addition to a certain apathy in the first half, where we did not do as well as we would have liked, once again on a rebound we passed a goal. In the second half, we did everything and the ball didn’t go in. A word to my men, who are sad, they denied themselves, once again they sold the game dearly, they took the risk, but those who work like that and who believe must be optimistic for the future. We know it will be a big fight, but we are confident that we can win it. It’s football, but luck changes too, and the way we do it, it’s going to change faster than many think,” the coach pointed out, in Sport TV’s quick interview area.
The coach also left a message to the League and the referee: “It’s easy to win at Arouca. They scored a goal from a free kick, then it was side balls, fouls, injuries, substitutions and we only had six minutes of compensation. Maybe we need a little more consideration and respect for the people of Arouca, it wouldn’t hurt the League or anyone else.
