Even before the press conference started, the defender was already showing some discomfort with the way he breathed. After about ten minutes and six questions answered to journalists, Anderson Conceição signaled to the club’s staff asking for the end of the interview.
– Guys, can I close? I’m feeling sick – said the defender.

The player spoke about the boos of the Vasco fans, who attended in force in São Januário. Despite the bad phase of the team, for Anderson the moment is to shield the group and focus on access.
– The fan is right to charge. We worked hard to win this victory at home. It didn’t turn out the way we wanted. We understand the fans’ frustration. But internally we have to keep working in the same way.
– This group has always been put to the test since it was assembled. It’s not from today. Internally we are united. Let’s talk less and work a lot. In this final stretch, the mental has to be strong. We have to be focused to play a great game against Operário. They are decisions and we only depend on us – completed the Vasco captain.
