“I still haven’t heard from Jorge Jesus the confirmation of these statements. I avoid talking at other people’s houses. I like to be in my corner, with respect. The other three Portuguese [Abel Ferreira, Paulo Sousa e Luís Castro] who are in Brazil have quality. Jorge Jesus himself has a lot of quality and has already proven himself here, as well as Abel. I know Luís Castro very well, we work in Porto. Paulo made his career abroad, but with titles. They all have the qualities and merits of working here”, said Vítor Pereira.

“The statements, if confirmed, the [Jorge Jesus] that has to be explained. Who am I to judge Jorge, who has not yet confirmed his statements, or Paulo? Paulo has to realize, this is an extremely competitive world and we are judged all the time, sometimes with correction and sometimes incorrectly with everyone. I won’t go any further on the subject. Nobody parachuted in here. I haven’t tasted anything here yet, I haven’t gained anything. I don’t usually lose a lot of games, but I’ve lost. The rest is to work, respect and be respected”, concluded VP.
