Carlos Xavier is of the opinion that the Leonine coach played a decisive role in the renovations of the various players. He also stresses that this is the ‘way for Sporting to keep winning’.
Carlos Xavier received with satisfaction the news that Pedro Porro had signed a contract with Sporting until 2025. The former Lions right-back/midfielder told O JOGO that Frederico Varandas-led SAD had taken the right decision” and had made “a worthy journey”.
“They are doing a valuable job, this is how Sporting will continue to win,” Xavier stressed, highlighting Rúben Amorim’s role in guiding the destinies of the professional team. “I’m just sorry that Rúben didn’t come to Sporting sooner. Apart from being a great coach, he creates a huge empathy with the players and that also makes the players feel comfortable at the club and not think twice when they have the option of renewing their contracts,” he explained.
In addition to Porro, the main team have already renewed Adán, Neto, Daniel Bragança, Matheus Nunes, Palhinha, Gonçalo Inácio and Pedro Gonçalves.
This season, Sporting won two titles, the least important, but according to Carlos Xavier there is no reason to “change the course of the project”, especially because “the team is solid”, the coach “confident “, and united leadership. “Presence at the next edition of the Champions League is also a decisive factor for the success of clubs,” he added.
