Braga manager Carlos Carvalhal noted: “We achieved what no one else had achieved and I am proud. I am very satisfied with that revelation role that I already achieved with Leixoes, Vitia Setúbal or Sheffield Wednesday.” He also added: “I had offers from England, my intention was to go back there, and I was very close to Flamengo. I finally decided to stay in Portugal because of the pandemic and because my family asked me not to go out. In addition, the Braga proposal came up, which is my club, my home.”
He noted: “Braga, as a club, and I, as a coach, are on the same growth curve. 10 years ago none of us were at this level.” “Braga is my club, my home. I think that I, with these players, can achieve something great, revalue them, take them to the national team”.
