For our success in the last game and that will also be preponderant tomorrow”.
Pedro Emanuel also spoke about the debut of referee António Nobre in Liga NOS. “I must welcome this debut, it is a sign that they recognize the quality to reach the main category of Portuguese football, he is so young, I hope he has enough serenity to make the right decisions.
