Paulo Fonseca

The head coach of Shakhtar commented on the upcoming meeting with Feyenoord.

Head coach of “miners” Paulo Fonseca took part in the press conference devoted to the match of the 4th round of the group stage of the Champions League against Feyenoord.

Changes in the composition

“We played a great game in the Netherlands, if not to speak about the first minute. I think that the game and tomorrow not much will change. I think that for two weeks, the team radically change not can. So we will see about the same game”.

About the pitch of RSC Metalist

“It employs a great team of agronomists and performs excellent work. Box is in excellent condition, despite the fact that you’ve recently played Metalist and Shakhtar”.

On a complex chart of the Pitmen

“This month was really difficult for us. Continuous flights, hotels, but we are training as usual, cooking for guys video. Told them the information they already have. Despite the tight schedule, we were able to study my opponent.”

About the importance of Facundo Ferreyra in the starting lineup of Shakhtar

“I trust all the players of your team and choose the composition based on what might happen. It is no secret that Facundo is now in great shape, experiencing the best phase in his career. However, I repeat that I trust absolutely all of its players”.

About the problems in attack

“We created a lot of chances but could not score. I spoke directly, we have had problems, but now we can handle and no more questions”.

The highlight of communication with the media was the question of the outfit that Mourinho would have chosen for the celebration of Halloween

“Until recently was thinking about this, since our players staged a charity evening Hellouina where they were all in masks, all was decorated. I tried to remember when I was a kid, I loved Zorro, because if I had the opportunity to participate in any fancy dress party, I’d wear a Zorro mask.

Lord, you grab me by the heels at every press conference. I can see the headlines in the magazines: Portuguese Zorro goes to Ukraine“.
