This Thursday, Roger Schmidt superior the match in opposition to Portimonense, the fifteenth matchday scheduled for tomorrow at 7 pm, in Luz.
How do you see Portimonense and the way is the group going through the most recent defeat?
“Tomorrow we can have a troublesome match, Portimonense is an efficient group, they play with physicality, with depth, with many gamers behind the ball, it isn’t straightforward to create alternatives. We want a wonderful efficiency tomorrow. We have been disenchanted. with the final. consequence as a result of we did not play as we wished. If we at all times play at this degree we can have difficulties with all of the groups within the League. We must play tactical soccer as a result of in any other case the person efficiency of the gamers will get worse. We have educated very properly and now we have actually trying ahead to enjoying at residence once more, in entrance of our followers, to indicate our supporters an excellent recreation and battle for the three factors”.
Will Enzo play or is he suspended?
“It has been a a lot talked about matter this week. Enzo is an efficient man and a rare participant, we would like him to remain, the scenario will not be straightforward, he performed the World Cup, he received the World Cup, he had proposals, there’s a lot of cash in recreation. He is a younger participant, that is complicated, all of us perceive that. But he is a wonderful individual. He was not approved to go to Argentina, it isn’t accepted that he went there, there will probably be penalties, I cannot say what .We do not wish to promote him, neither me nor the president. Everyone is aware of there’s a launch clause, if he desires to go away and somebody breaks the clause, we’d lose the participant. There is a membership that wishes him, they’ve tried to lure him , however they know they’ll solely have him in the event that they pay the clause It’s disrespectful to all of us at Benfica they are driving the participant loopy Pretend they wish to pay the clause after which wish to negotiate About Enzo that is all I’ll say and I’ll reply no extra questions on it.”
What went flawed with Benfica in the previous few video games?
“We missed quite a bit, sadly. We spent quite a bit of time at a excessive degree, the gamers have been very centered, with clear concepts about what to do when now we have the ball or not. It’s crucial that every one the gamers have that concept internalized If there are gamers who don’t remain centered within the recreation, we play much less tactical soccer, we arrive late, we now not have management of the sport You cannot examine the League Cup match with Sp. Braga, with the Moreirense. we created probabilities however we drew. Against Sp. Braga obtained the gamers again and the eleven we placed on the sector was the identical one we performed in opposition to Juventus. It was all to do with the tactical conduct . We had an excellent dynamic, however this isn’t one thing that may be turned on and off, now we have to work to get it once more. My process and that of the group is to recollect what now we have already carried out, to return to achieve a better degree. Tomorrow we are going to certainly do higher than final week and we can have l ‘alternative to win’.
Talked to Enzo, does he wish to exit?
“I mentioned I did not wish to reply any extra questions on this matter. He is our participant, we like him and we hope he stays.”
How is Enzo psychologically?
“I will not reply any extra questions on Enzo.”
How is David Neres?
“David is heading in the right direction, he has developed quite a bit this week, however he has been coaching with the group for some time. Tomorrow we are going to resolve if he enters the beginning eleven.”
Is Benfica a group that is dependent upon some gamers?
“Every group on the earth is dependent upon some gamers. The high quality of the gamers is decisive. But to carry out at their greatest the gamers who performed most of the time within the first half of the season did so as a result of they are superb. My alternative is dependent upon what’s greatest for Benfica and the most effective strategy to win every recreation. The gamers on the bench even have the chance to say ‘reward’. Tomorrow Rafa comes out and now we have to discover a resolution. He is an important participant however through the season we performed with out vital gamers and nonetheless received.”
