The pair worked together at Porto and Quaresma admits he still holds a grudge over the way he was offloaded by Lopetegui.
Quaresma said, “I never perceived the reason why he did not talk to me directly.
"I never did him wrong, but I knew from the first day that it would be like this.
"When I learned that Lopetegui was not counting on me for the second year, I came home and cried in front of my family for the first time ... I had everything ready to finish my career at FC Porto and I had to change my plans even after I had done a good season.
"Lopetegui is a person who was not honest with me. While (Co) Adriaanse had his crazy things, he always told me what he thought, and I like people with personality, those who are upfront."
