Rui Costa:
About winning the Carlberg cup:

00:00 "He's motivated, confident, well-planned. We know it will be a difficult game. It's always a derby. The derbies are always hard. It's a competition we want to win. We wanted to win it since the beginning. We don't accept the idea that we'll win it to save the season. Benfica doesn't enter competitions to save seasons."

Despite Benfica's defeat against V. Guimaraes, he still trusts coach Quique:

"When things don't go right, one always looks to blame anyone anywhere, coach, president, sporting director, players. We need to know how to accept those criticisms when they exist and realize wha't going right and wrong. Quique has all my confidence. He'll continue having my trust. I work with whim daily."

01:11 Nuno Gomes in the press conference:
"The president, yesterday or before yesterday, made declarations that he counted with the coach. The gorup is also with the coach. We consider him a coach with innovative ideas."

01:37 About Rui Costa winning a trophy as a sporting director, not as a player:
"I hope it will be my first trophy. I'm optimistic so I hope it will be the first of many."
