This week, news appeared in the French press about PSG’s interest in Hugo Viana for the post of sporting director, the same role he plays at Sporting. Rúben Amorim did not comment directly on the news, but once again underlined the enormous importance of Hugo Viana in the lions project.
“Viana is essential in our idea. The bond I have with him is more than work, he is like a member of the family, but we work for Sporting, he is a person who does not ask for attention and is always ready to help to coach and structure. He has a crucial role. There are clubs that don’t need [de diretor desportivo]but in our case, he does his job like no one else,” he told a news conference.
