FC Porto coach at a press conference before the reception of Vitória de Guimarães, in the 12th round of the Bwin League, scheduled for 20:30 on Sunday.

Estimated time for injuries: “I have them there every day… There aren’t any. As you know, Marcano underwent surgery, Pepe and Francisco [Conceição] at this moment, we are evaluating it daily and looking at the evolution of the lesions, but there is no time frame in which we can say: “this will be the case and you will be recovered”.

Corona: “Honestly, I don’t feel like talking today, in this sense of the individual… We have to look at the collective and what we have to do as a team, tomorrow, in an important and difficult game that we are going to have, and not get into these detailed issues , I was going to say what I have already said about this athlete. FC Porto also needs him to play more, more time, it is a matter of work. He is part of the group and has to prepare for when he is called to give the answer he has to give. “

Does it appear that Fábio Cardoso plays tomorrow? “There is a high possibility that this will happen.”

Vitória de Guimaraes: “Each game has its own dynamics. The preparation of the game is exactly the same, looking at the opponent’s behavior. Vitória de Guimarães has played in 4x3x3, with three men in front, two of them in the wings, very capable in the power to unbalance in one for one, very interesting. They have a man up front who plays well and who is a reference to then take advantage of his ability to connect with the wings. Midfield with experience, but also technical quality. It’s an interesting team with individualities interesting, with some experience and irreverence. We are interested in looking at our team, at what we have to do.”
