THE BALL – Derby at the time of Morocco-Portugal: «The other sports never stopped to watch handball» (Handball)

Ricardo Costa, Sporting’s coach, commented on the controversy surrounding the handball derby against Benfica, in Luz (27-27), hours after the eagles threw themselves at the lions for refusing to postpone the game that started at the same time as Portugal- Morocco, for the soccer World Cup.

«I am paid to train, I am not involved in other matters. The truth is that other sports have never stopped to watch handball, so our job is to do our best on the field», said the coach of the green and white team.
