In an interview with Sport TV, the Tottenham winger warned of the difficulties the Lions could face in London against Arsenal.
Poro will want Sporting to win against Arsenal but knows the Lions’ task will not be easy given the difference in pace between the Premier League and Liga Bwin. “The pace is different, I noticed that just in the first game, the pace is more intense and the style of play is more physical. At Sporting I had more of the ball and here there are better teams, I have to defend more and these are things I’m learning little by little. At Sporting they attacked more, the model is similar to that of Tottenham but they attacked more. Here, the last ranking can beat us and that for me makes this league more beautiful.” said the winger, in an interview with Sport TV, where he still remembered his departure from Alvalade: “The last few days were a bit intense, it was difficult, but I had to move on with my life. It was a big change. but I think I’m doing good. The first weeks were difficult because of the language, I didn’t understand English very well, but now I understand it better and I hope it stays that way because that will be the most important thing.”
The early days in England were again marked by the sign of the lion as, his first support, was a former Sporting player who now shines for Tottenham and the England national team, Eric Dier. “They welcomed me well. I had already played against them for Sporting, in the Champions League, so they already knew me. As I said, they welcomed me well from the first day, and I also tried to adapt to them. Dier helped me a lot because, soon on the first day, he sent me a message offering help with anything I needed. That helps a lot in a new country with new teammates. I can only say I’m grateful to him because he helped me a lot,” added the defender who also spoke about Ruben Amorim and Antonio Conte: “They are two different managers, each has his own style of playing and training. Both have treated me in the best possible way. They are managers with different styles.” .
Despite being physically away, Porro continues to monitor Sporting’s campaign and has no doubt that Nuno Santos’ goal deserves the Puskas Award and reopened the doors for the Spain national team. “I’ve always worked for it and now it’s a new era with a new coach. I’ll keep working as hard as I can to take advantage of the opportunity,” he concluded.
