After a great performance by Vitória de Guimarães in the victory over Marítimo by scoring the winning goal at 90’+1 and making an assist, Rochinha shared, on the conquerors’ official website, the happiness for the current moment.
“It was a very emotional ending, both for us and for those who were watching. Fortunately, that goal came and we managed to leave with the three points that were the most important. It was a feeling of justice», confessed the extreme.
The fact that he captained Vitória in the final part of the match was also not overlooked in the topics covered: «It is very special to wear the armband in a club as big as Vitória, it means a lot to me. As I’ve said in the past, the responsibility is the same, which is to always help my colleagues as much as possible», Rochinha stressed.
Looking ahead to the duel with Benfica, on Wednesday, for the League Cup, the Victorian was optimistic: “We want to face the game in the best way because we want to continue in the competition and I think we are on the right path.”
Rochinha hasn’t always been a starter, but he put the question into perspective: «When I started, the coach always asked for what he always asked for, to put creativity in the game and try to get us ahead of the result to get the victory, which is the most important thing. The goals and assists are important, individually, but it only proves the quality that Vitória has on the wings. For the coach, it’s great to have this competitiveness among everyone and it only makes it difficult for those who have to choose, but it’s a good headache. He’s certainly happy with everyone’s performance.”
