Porto may have been crowned champions of Portugal on Sunday for the 22nd time in their history but for their 60-year-old coach Manuel Jesualdo Ferreira it was the first championship of his long career.

Ferreira´s appointment as boss of the Dragoes was somewhat controversial last year as Porto launched a cross-town raid to take him from city rivals Boavista who had only just appointed him. But the former Braga and Boavista coach had no regrets on Sunday in making his move from the Estadio do Bessa to the Estadio do Dragao.

Jesualdo Ferreira told club website "On a personal level, I am delighted to win the first championship in my career but I would especially like to underline the collective effort. It has been a difficult championship and we have won with merit mainly because the team remained solid and unified as did the whole structure of FC Porto. It´s a victory for all of us."
