Praia, Jan 19 (Inforpress) – Former coach of Académica da Praia, team declared champion of the 2019/2020 season, said on Tuesday he was already waiting for the title to be awarded in the regional football championship of Southern Santiago to his old team.
Speaking to Inforpress, coach Humberto Bettencourt, who led Académica da Praia’s team last season, said he was already sure that his team would be named champion, although he had to wait about ten months for that to happen.
“Finally, it arrived late, but better late than never. In a 22-game championship, Académica had already played more than two thirds of the matches, undefeated, with 16 wins and just two draws. I think it is more than enough an argument to award the title,” he said.
Bettencourt, who currently assumes his duties of assistant coach of Cabo Verde, was pleased to be two times champion in terms of his personal curriculum, since he had already been champion by Celtic da Praia in the 2018/2019 season and this time he won again the title with Académica da Praia.
