We can win trophies again this season, says FC Porto star Hulk – Portuguese Primeira Liga News
FC Porto star, Hulk, claims that the club are strong enough and can win trophies again just like last season. The Portistas were able to secure an unprecedented quadruple last term and the Brazilian striker insists that they have the firepower to do it once
Under the tutelage of Andre Villas-Boas, were able to win a quadruple, consisting of the Portuguese Cup, Portuguese Super Cup, UEFA Europa League and the Primeira Liga.
However their turbulent summer has dented a bit of their steam and many now claim that the reigning champions will not be able to defend their title, let alone match their impressive feats of the 2010/2011 campaign.
The departure of influential marksman,, has written off the Dragons according to many.
With domestic competition also stiffening up, the season also looks to be a tough one for FC Porto, especially with the form their rivals are currently in.
Lisbon side, Benfica, are not only 1st in the Liga Sagres rankings but they have also yet to taste defeat since the beginning of the season. Sporting Lisbon have also gone up a notch and after securing seven wins out of seven, they have discarded
the label of a team being in transition.
Although facing a daunting task to replicate their heroics, FC Porto’s Hulk claims that the club have what it takes to become the best in the land and backed the new trainer, Vitor Pereira to succeed at the helm.
Speaking to reporters, the Selecao International said that the Dragao were now returning to their very best and said that with the current coaching staff they would definitely challenge for honours.
"The positive results are now emerging. We have everything necessary to win trophies again this season. Victor Pereira is a great coach and he deserves the opportunity to coach us," he said.
The former Tokyo Verdy man also said that while Villas-Boas was a superb tactician and he wished him well for the future, their new boss was also quite talented and has worked with the team before.
"Andre Villas-Boas is a great coach, I wish him was quoted as saying.
While Hulk reiterates that his side will be able to secure silverware this season that is not as easy as it sounds.
Winning the Primeira Liga is already quite difficult and conquering a prestigious tournament like the UEFA Champions League, where the likes of Manchester United and dominate is almost close to impossible.
