Sergio Conceiçao, Porto coach, has once again put former Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas on the bench. This is now his third game in a row starting in the dug-out, having missed out against Lusitano in the Cup and then, more surprisingly, against Leipzig in the Champions League.
Casillas behaviour "fantastic"
"Casillas' behaviour has been fantastic and that's that", said the coach, in a bid to put the matter to bed after rumours that the decision to drop him was because of a poor attitude and excessive mobile phone use. "It was a technical decision. If there had been a problem with him, he wouldn't have been in the squad", said Sergio Conceiçao.
José Sá will therefore be in goal for Porto for their league game against Paços Ferreira on Saturday night, with kick-off at 21:30 CEST, his third game in a row.
