Amorim: “Are you hiring Arthur? I still haven’t found the local man.”

Sporting coach Ruben Amorim in statements after Estoril win explains hiring of winger Arthur Gomes amid much talk of Sporting needing another spearhead .

“The explanation is simple. On the wing, I was sure of the player I wanted: Arthur Gomes. From its history, the formation of Santos is a player that we have known for some time. I look at the future of Sporting and it fits perfectly. And we still haven’t found a local man that I can say is who he should be. And if I can’t find it, I won’t. You will need to be patient with the local man. We tried to catch up with the team there. Every day I need to lower the pot, many times it will happen, I need another winger and we have Arthur. A player with great potential and who will grow a lot. The local man will have to wait, Paulinho is back in the next training so things will start to calm down.

“We are always weaker when we lose important players, but we don’t know what the future will be. We can’t keep important players and we have a much higher demand. Two defeats completely change the scenario at the club . If they come with a request, it’s up to us to look at all the panorama we have and not have any ghosts. Let’s get back together as a team.”
