Portu revels in ‘deserved’ Girona win

Cristian Portugues – known as Portu – believes Girona deserved their victory over Real Madrid on the balance of play after he scored the winner.

There were complaints from the Spanish champions that the 25-year-old was in an offside position for his winning goal but he admitted he did not know if he was or not.

“My goal? I honestly do not know, I saw the ball and didn't think about anything else,” Portu is quoted as saying by Marca.

“We enjoyed a really strong first half, we hit the post twice and knew that if we kept on this patch we would eventually be rewarded.

“The result of the game is fair and deserved and for us, these three points will be very important in our bid for survival, we want to play another game already!”

Portu has now scored three goals this season and originally joined the Catalan club in 2016.
