Watch baffled Porto boss Conceicao leave press conference after just 50 seconds as NOBODY asks question after Juve winMarch 10, 2021
PORTO manager Sergio Conceicao was left baffled as NOBODY asked him a question after his side's stunning win against Juventus.
It meant the post-match press conference on Zoom lasted just 50 seconds, with Conceicao getting up and leaving.
After initially sitting down, the press officer asked: "OK. Good evening for all of you following us through Zoom. Any questions?"
Following a moments of silence, he said: "For those of you following through Zoom, I would like you to pose your questions.
"I can't see any requests now."
Amazingly, despite Serie A champions Juve having been dumped out of the Champions League, not one question was asked.
Losing patience, the press officer added: "That's it? Well? Any questions? That's it then, let's go."
Despite the bizarre presser, it was still a memorable night for Porto, who progressed into the quarter-finals on away goals and with ten men.
The Portuguese giants came into the return tie 2-1 ahead and added to their lead after 19 minutes as Sergio Oliveira opened the scoring.
Juve hit back, though, as a double from Federico Chiesa took the game into extra-time.

But Porto did so with a man down, after Mehdi Taremi was sent off after a second yellow for kicking the ball away, deemed a time wasting offence.
Despite the disadvantage, the visiting side remarkably scored again in added time with Oliveira doubling his tally through a pile-driving free-kick.
Midfielder Adrien Rabiot pulled one back just minutes later but it was too little too late, as Porto's fight back and resilience paid off.
Despite the five-goal thriller, and red card drama, still no one saw fit to address the mastermind behind the upset, Conceicao, afterwards.
