Statements after the 2-1 triumph in the seventh round of the championship.
Corona was the novelty in the FC Porto eleven in Barcelos, replacing João Mário. After the 2-1 triumph, Sérgio Conceição turned to the Mexican international.
“The changes I make are always a function of strategy, of the opponent. Samuel Lino is almost a second striker. I thought that today [sexta-feira] the Corona would give a strong response. Afterwards, they are options that the coach takes,” he said.
In focus was Sérgio Oliveira, launched in the second half and scorer of the winning goal. The midfielder has not been the first choice this season, after a 2020/21 season in style. “I don’t like to single out. Sérgio has had a good behavior in his daily work. However, other players gave a good response. Whoever I think is better, plays,” said the coach.
