LEVERKUSEN, GERMANY (FEBRUARY 19, 2020) (REUTERS) FC PORTO FORWARD MOUSSA MAREGA, WHO SUFFERED RACIAL ABUSE DURING A PORTUGUESE LEAGUE MATCH THREE DAYS AGO, WALKING ONTO PITCH PORTO COACH SERGIO CONCEICAO ON PITCH VARIOUS OF TEAM STANDING ON PITCH VARIOUS OF WARM-UP PORTO COACH SERGIO CONCEICAO AND CENTRE BACK DIOGO LEITE ARRIVING FOR NEWS CONFERENCE PHOTOGRAPHER TAKING PICTURES (SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) FC PORTO COACH, SERGIO CONCEICAO, SAYING (ACCORDING TO OFFICIAL GERMAN TRANSLATION): "In all these discussions it's important not to lose the main point out of sight which is racism. We as a team enjoy a very strong cohesion, we stick together and ultimately, we are all the same, no matter what colour of skin we have, how tall we are or what we look like. We are all the same. Now to the question how when other coaches comment on us, how they would have reacted: who knows? This is the first time something like this happened in Portugal that a player walked off the pitch. We have no book, no instructions, how we should act? We have instructions for many other things but for this, there are no instructions. Right at that moment all we wanted to do is calm down Moussa Marega. We wanted to calm down the situation. That's what happened. There were a lot of communication already, from the president and so on. He would prefer for the issue to be over with now and that other topics could be discussed again." LEITE SPEAKING (SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) CENTRE BACK, DIOGO LEITE, SAYING (ACCORDING TO OFFICIAL GERMAN TRANSLATION): "We all hope that we can return to normality as soon as possible again and that we can concentrate on soccer. But of course we discussed it and our view is that we are one family, one community in the locker room and that's the spirit which leads us. Now we want to concentrate on tomorrow's game."
