“The Sérgio Conceição is already in a great club, with a great history in world football. I don’t know his claims, but he’s a coach he admires a lot and who, along with his team, has an exceptional quality. I know he still has two years left on his contract with FC Porto and I hope he reflects on that period. He must have many possibilities, as he continues to do an amazing job, but what I hope is the best luck in the world and that he continues to make good decisions,” he said.
