Hector Herrera, captain of FC Porto, in declarations to Porto Canal in the celebrations of the blue and white championship:
“I had never been cheered this way and could not pass up, I had to thank the public, the fans, who were amazing all year long. Often loved, others not so much? In life and in soccer, there are good and bad times. You have to be strong in the head and not distrust of ourselves. I continued to work, everyone knows that I love being here, I love the city and the club. Many times I do not know how to express my feelings for the club, I wish I was more expressive in this kind of thing. But those who know me know how to defend these colors. The confidence of the coach was crucial.
I just want to celebrate this title, especially our families. And there is still only a five-time champion in this country. “
“It was not easy. Other teams might relax after a night like this, but we were aware of what to do and the group is very mature. We wanted to win at home to celebrate as it should be. It was with such seriousness that we faced the meeting. It is the fruit of a year of work. Now is to celebrate and have a good time, which is not a champion every fortnight.

I had not had the opportunity to win the championship here, but this league showed what it’s like to be a player. “

I think he brought in the signature DNA of FC Porto. Personally I just have to thank you. It is the clear example of the human being who is and I am very happy. “
[last season has been much criticized, and now scored a goal that turns out to be key in this walk for the title … is the perfect turnaround?] “I do not take much into account what people say, what they think of me. I always work 100 percent to help the team. I was silent and continued to work without lowering my head. I do not think to show people that they were wrong, but rather show myself that I can play at any level. I’m glad to help the team. Those who know me know that my delivery is complete. “
