Statements from António Folha, coach of Portimonense, to BTV after a 5-1 defeat by Benfica at Estádio da Luz in the 32nd round of the Primera Liga.
"It's a very difficult game, even though I think my team made an excellent game. Playing at this stadium, with Benfica being able to be a champion and demonstrate the quality of play and opportunities we had, I think my players have to be happy."
"Obviously, after taking the second goal, the team spiritually fell a bit. After that, the game ends and Benfica wins, but until then, it was a game with two quality teams, identified processes, game idea well-marked and that leaves me satisfied. "
"From the second goal, the players, to make a good game, to win 1-0, with opportunities to expand the marker … in a short time Benfica changes the result and the players, animally, felt a lot. "It's important to continue with this mentality, even if it loses, these kids are still in character and it's in this spirit that I want the team."
