Conceicao greets Taremi: “He has made me nervous in recent years, but I wish him the greatest happiness”

The Taça de Portugal, the Portuguese Cup, is from Port. Conceiçao’s team in fact triumphed 2-1 after 120 endless minutes, at the end of the usual battle against historic rivals Sporting. The match had two great protagonists: the defender St. Juste and Mehdi Taremi. The former, after putting the Lisbon team ahead in the 20th minute, was sent off nine minutes later, just 4 minutes after Evanilson’s equaliser. The Iranian striker, who will wear the Inter shirt next season, came on at the start of the second half and in the 100th minute (10′ of the first extra half) decided the final by coolly converting a penalty kick. A last gift before saying goodbye.

At the end of the match he intervened Sergio Conceicaocoach of the Dragoes, to greet the Iranian center forward: “I wish him the greatest happiness in the world, for him and his family. Taremi has really made me nervous in these four years, especially in training. He has a way of working that is very He’s very professional – continued the Portuguese coach – but sometimes a little relaxed. He hurt me a lot, he took many things seriously. But I managed to get the best out of Taremi, even in a difficult situation easy”.

“When I learned of his departure for Italy (to Inter, ed.), the fans’ opinion wasn’t the best. I’ve always believed them: it’s not the contract that makes the coach or the player, but the attitude If he worked like this until the last day – Conceiçao’s words taken from In Bola – like others who left in the same situation, he would play until the last day. There are those who have a long-term contract and perhaps will leave at the end of the season. Until the season ended and we didn’t have the contract, we had to take advantage of Taremi’s quality.”
