THE BALL – Nélson Veríssimo and the future: “Things will not change” (Benfica)

Benfica’s coach was again asked about his future at the end of the season. He said he only thinks of four games left, and doesn’t even think he can pass Sporting’s ranking in second place.

– I have already had the opportunity to mention after the Sporting game that things will not change. We came here with a goal that was to take the team to the end of the season, we have to do it, the rest doesn’t matter. When the results are positive, it is natural for people to change their minds, but we will focus on the four remaining games, ”said Nélson Veríssimo Famalicão in the preview preview.

– We accept a team that is in a difficult situation, we know that these games can be complicated if we are not at a high level. It is the opponent who wants to control the ball and take over the game with a pressure block. We are expecting a difficult team and we need to be at a high level and we cannot promote anything, in line with what we have done in recent games, ”he said.

When asked if the team could still overtake the Sporting League in second place, Nélson Veríssimo did not commit, even though he faced a competitor at the moment. – Honestly, I don’t know what Sporting’s psychological moment is. Before the match against Sporting, we launched a challenge to win five games, four games left, and we need to focus on that. We don’t play alone, we find strong opponents, we don’t depend on ourselves to get second place, but we stick to our proposal to win the four games we have to play, ”he concluded.
