It is important to play with both heart and mind” - Rui Vitoria ahead of #SpartakLeicester

Rui Vitoria answered the press’ questions ahead of our Europa League tie against Leicester on Wednesday. Speaking highly of the opposition’s quality, our manager emphasised the need to play well with both heart, and mind.

Talking of our injury woes, Vitoria said -  “Of course I’d like to avoid personnel losses, especially before games against opposition of such a pedigree. Unfortunately, we have a number of players still recovering, this applies to Promes too. The decision on his participation in the game will be taken tomorrow itself. We have dealt with this before, and I hope we can handle it now. The derby against Dynamo is behind us, we are ready for a new game.”

As for our chances against Leicester, Vitoria expressed his confidence in the team. “I have a good feeling, I believe that there is a chance to win. We have proven that we have a strong character. At the same time, in every training session, I make it a point to stress on the importance of playing with your mind. The two elements need to be combined. We tried to play smartly against Napoli, and towards the end of the game against Dynamo. Thank you very much to the fans who kept the players going until the very end. We really appreciate it!”
