Pepe Mel highlighted in Estadio do Dragão's press room that Dépor is “a team under construction. It is nothing like FC Porto, which is already formed. They have more pace. They’ve just come from a tour in Mexico. It’s a good team, strong up front, fast. They’ve pressed high, they didn’t let us play”.

He stated that the result “is what it is. It can’t be changed”. However, he said, “the two last goals make our game look worse”.

The Deportivista coach emphasized that “we have a striker problem, we don’t have any more. We are under construction and we hope that by the 20th of August, which is when we begin the league, the team will be much better without a doubt”.

Luisinho, today’s captain at O Dragão, said the same words as Pepe Mel, “we’re under construction. They are matches we want to win but we are facing quite a different rival. We gave our all. There is still plenty of time left until the league begins, and we’ll be ready then”.
