No word from Sporting
"I've waited until deadline day to receive contact from the club for whom I gave everything last season and I have not received no single phonecall. It's sad", Coentrão explained. According to reports in Portugal, Sporting had shown some interest in taking the player for the new campaign.
Despite his deception with no word from Sporting, Coentrão is happy with the decision his has made to return to Rio Ave. "After all of this, I felt what I really needed was to be happy; I have lost a lot of money to join a club who were upfront and honest with me, and achieve happiness", he explained. "The reality is that no amount of money can buy happiness. I was born poor, so why should I care if I die poor?".
