Porto basketball is already preparing for the next season, and general manager Afonso Barros recently ended it in response to accusations against the club. He only regretted that he did not face Sporting in Europe.

Without referring to the controversy since their semi-final win over Sporting, the FC Porto season did not end without a response from coach Luís Magalhães, who left Sporting and ended his career, and Benfica winger Ivan Almeida. accusing racism and angering dragons.

As he prepares for the new season without coach Moncho Lopez for the first time since 2009, Porto general manager Afonso Barros told O JOGO “those who can’t be overlooked”.

“Luis Magalhaes deserved to answer with the same irony, but I prefer to go based on the facts. Carlos Santos would never have been a good choice for FC Porto. Porto was accused of being the “county” with the most players.

The coach’s comments were very bad about Dragon. Afonso Barros, “Magalhães gave a 40-minute farewell interview,” said Afonso Barros, “He could have said a farewell interview to get out the big door at his age, but he preferred to go out the small door, he didn’t even do it” 30 spent talking about Porto FC; this is the story of his leaving all the clubs.

“We can’t stop considering our European project a failure. We didn’t make it to the second round because of a last-minute missed basket. He praised Oradea’s coaching Sporting, but he suffered two great defeats. He praised FC Porto for beating him at home. but Benfica and FC Porto were close to being in the same group. I would like three of them to play with international referees … He also talked about the circus set up by FC Porto; what we did was to open the doors of the circus so that everyone could see what was happening in basketball.

FC Porto manager congratulated Benfica on the national championship, acknowledging that “he has won three of the four games and is therefore a champion.”

“There’s nothing to say in contrast to what happened last year with the puppet show,” he added without assessing the home factor that FC Porto didn’t have because he didn’t show up twice at the start of the season.

“If Benfica hadn’t lost their dignity, I believe the story would have been different in the first two games at home,” he said.

“Benfica has a very strong squad and a significantly higher budget. In addition, they were restoring their players, and in the final there was a very strong Dennis Clifford, and in the meantime he strengthened himself with sports, so to speak, with Ivan Almeida. This is a serious matter,” he said. also explained, among Cape Verdea’s extreme criticisms of racism charges.

“It was staged, there was no racism”

“Ivan Almeida made a move and a joke. Neither I nor Porto had to defend the isolated action of a fan, but there was no racism. Basketball is a sport of more diversity and inclusion, we have people of all colors and religions in our team. “He staged something around something that never existed, he wanted to arouse some hostility. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out in anyone’s favor,” said Afonso Barros. it was not necessary. “

“I congratulated everyone at Benfica because you have to know how to lose and win. If some of our players didn’t react well, it was because you couldn’t do that to our fans,” he explained.
