Canal 11 interviewed Vitória de Guimarães goalkeeper Bruno Varela and spoke about the two penalties awarded in the match against FC Porto, at Estádio D. Afonso Henriques, in the 29th round of the League, April 10, match that dragon they won. 1-0, Taremi’s goal, from 11 meters, in 36 minutes – the Iranian would miss a second penalty, in 63 minutes.
The 27-year-old goalkeeper, who spent his second consecutive season at Guimarães and spent almost all of his training at Benfica, considers João Pinheiro’s bid to be well-judged.
“I always analyze the games when I get home. Then, on the first day, I do the analysis with the goalkeeping coach. In this move (first penalty), that’s what we talked about; I wasn’t well positioned. I was hoping that Taremi couldn’t control the ball, but he did. The first thing I thought was that I was going to get to the ball first, but half of me was sorry. “It’s a penalty for me. I accept the decision. He did his job, I shouldn’t have approached him like that,” he confessed.
In the second half, the blue and white striker was awarded another penalty but missed.
“If it was a striker on my team, Oscar Estupiñán or Bruno Duarte, for example, I would accept the penalty. He is not worth a hypocrite. He was a ‘rat’, as they say. Taremi does that very well … I was frustrated because I studied this and saw so many similar movements, but in the game we made the decision. he came on my knees and sought contact, but I accepted the penalty, “he said.
