Statements by Sérgio Conceição, coach of FC Porto, to the media of the blue and white emblem, in anticipation of the final of the Portuguese Cup, against Tondela (Sunday, 5:15 p.m.).

Tondela: “It’s a final. Anything can happen, we have to be very alive and suspicious of what the game can bring. Every game has its story and every moment can change the course of that same game. Focused and focused on the team who is going to be the most motivated that we will find this season, despite being relegated from the division. Also for this feeling of revolt and motivation to play a historic final for the club. The message that I want to convey is that we did not win the Cup. yet the festivities are over. They must be aware of this and face this match as a real final. Our responsibility is great and we have taken it, but we still have not played or won.”

Different week to be a final? “The only thing that was different was that we worked longer on penalties. Otherwise it was like the others, looking at Tondela with respect.”

Special moments on the way to the final? “I don’t want to name any of them, the most important is the final.”

Image from 1998 where he won the Cup as a player and blue sea in the stands, missing as a coach at Jamor? “The will is great, the ambition is great. The public, our fans, always push with passion for the team and on Sunday there will be no shortage of support. It’s up to us to justify that support.”
