Heavy score for Robin Amorim. The Sporting coach commented bitterly on Manchester City’s 5-0 home win in the Champions League quarter-final first leg: “We entered the game well, with character, but as they attacked us they came to our door and scored. From there it became more difficult. In the second half she was struggling. “I don’t think it was football, we were there to suffer. I have to say words of appreciation to the players because they have such a great personality and to the fans, who once again showed that they are with the team.”
Surprised by the power of the city?
“We were not surprised by anything. You also need to be aware of the differences. There are athletes who can reach the level of City players, but we know their lineage. I am sure we will be better in the future. I loved the character of the team. Until the third goal we performed well. They killed us with this net. We had character, we hit the ball well, but the way they killed us shows us what a great team they are. Last year we were eliminated from LASK and we are now in the last 16 of the Champions League with the best team in the world. Also the fault of the players, they have outdone themselves, they have grown up very quickly. The race is set, we take advantage of every minute of the second match to grow. These players have amazing potential, but we faced the best team in the world. It is not only about the quality of the players, but also the way in which the manager plays the team.
