Conceiçao gives hope to OM

After refusing to lead OM following the last meeting in Lille, Paulo Fonseca is now on the verge of joining AC Milan. The track has already been forgotten by the club from the South of France. If Longoria and his management have an eye on Conceiçao, they can have a bit of hope after the exit of the Portuguese coach following the Portuguese Cup won this Sunday against Sporting (2-1). The coach confided that he is leaving this summer.

” I took my decision. In my head, my future is already decided. I will communicate it in the coming days. (…) During the press conference, I wanted to make it clear that the situation was well defined and that I had already made my decision. Will Villas-Boas convince me to stay? It’s not about convincing… It’s about looking at the future together and seeing it with complete peace of mind, with the objective of uniting FC Porto. Everything that was said outside Olival (the FCP training center) was not easy to manage”suggested the former coach of FC Nantes after the third Portuguese Cup in a row won with Porto.
