“I also asked the security guard to sit down, to speak to the group”

João Henriques, coach of Marítimo, evaluates the defeat that Benfica suffered, in Luz, in the seventh spherical of the League (5-0):

“These numbers are in line with what Benfica did. We had been quiet. We did not have the confidence to take the sport from the begin. We had been simply defending, and that is not what we wished. We had been so silly that we misplaced 16-5 at the worst. Playing evenly, it is a crew with the confidence that Benfica has, I’m making 5 errors…

«It shouldn’t be the finest a part of Marítimo. On the one hand, a bunch that has 100% confidence, receiving a bunch that I am unable to say how assured it’s. We have 10 injured in the restoration section, and these two weeks will permit them to get well. Beltrame has already performed a couple of minutes right here, and we have now necessary gamers to assist the crew. There is a insecurity, an imaginary concern. We have not accomplished a lot to speak about this sport. “

“We are unhappy, we wished to do one thing. We don’t have any factors and Benfica continues with out dropping factors. They are a extremely motivated crew, preventing towards a crew with a insecurity. “

[sobre o peso do segundo golo, logo a abrir a segunda parte] “We do not like to rating objectives, nevertheless it’s true [que deitou por terra tudo o que tinha sido falado ao intervalo]. We tried to enhance issues throughout the break, we made adjustments. If we could not rating, we wished to take 1-0 as a lot as doable, and play playing cards. Immediately we confronted 2-0, and the crew went down. There was a time after I asked the goalkeeper to sit down, as a result of I had to discuss to the crew and put together once more. The ball burns at the toes, and that is what we’re doing. We could have a break, and we’ll enter six video games towards groups from our competitors. Today was not the sport of our competitors, our greatest mistake. We have not tried, for all these causes. My phrases exit to the followers and mates of Marítimo: make certain, this crew will get a number of factors. Let’s play aggressive soccer. Come to a spot like this and speak about sports activities. Today we can’t do this.”

[sobre a importância da paragem] “It will make the injured win two weeks, attempt to begin pondering. This is troublesome. In addition, we solely play on Monday, and daily is necessary to use what we wish. The sport with Casa Pia can be our take a look at. The confidence is not going to be at the peak, however it will likely be sufficient to win the sport and begin good spherical.”

[sobre o plano pensado para travar o Benfica] We wished to do various things, however we did not do something. It shouldn’t be essential to be right here with many mental questions. We haven’t but reached the first stage of constructing Benfica. In the second spherical he managed to enter once more. At the backside it was 5x4x1, however Benfica managed to get in once more. We did nothing. Even after we acquired the ball again, the crew wilted. Players know the way to do that, however this time makes issues troublesome. “
