THE BALL – Rúben Amorim on Marcus Edwards and V. Guimarães: “It would be difficult to take something away from him…” (Sporting)

When asked if he had asked Marcus Edwards for advice on the game with V. Guimarães, this Saturday, since the England winger was signed from Guimarães in January, Rúben Amorim joked, even because the player has a reserved personality.

“No, nothing… It would be hard to take anything away from him.” [risos]. You have to understand the way we play, it’s getting better. I left this observation of the opponent to us, although we already have some knowledge of Pepa’s teams from previous matches. They are always teams with their own identity,” he told a press conference.

Earlier, he was asked about Sporting not conceding in the last three games, including one against Man. City, in the Etihad, and being able to get the best defensive streak if they keep the goal to zero at Guimarães.

“Not conceding a goal, we always score, apart from City we usually score and that way we get closer to winning games, but everything counts, the way we attack too. The objective is not to concede goals and score goals.

Regarding what remains of the season and the fight for the championship, it does not disarm. “Everyone at Sporting thinks about winning titles, we are at a disadvantage and it’s not worth doing a lot of calculations, I think you have to win all or almost all the games to have hope. And we still have a say in the Cup,” he stressed.
