Bola-Conceição seeks unprecedented achievement (Porto)

Sérgio Conceição could become the first FC Porto coach to win the two major national titles, the Portuguese Championship and the Cup, twice in the same season.

Yustrich (1955/1956), Ivic (1987/1988), António Oliveira (1997/1998), José Mourinho (2002/2003), Co Adriaanse (2005/2006), Jesualdo Ferreira (2008/2009), André Villas-Boas (2010/2011) and Sérgio Conceição himself (2019/2020) are the coaches who are inscribed in the history of FC Porto’s eight doubles. However, none of them were able to repeat this feat.

But the current captain is well positioned to add the Portuguese Cup to the tournament he won this season. The longevity of Sergio Conceicao in charge of the Blues and the Whites represented an opportunity to collect more titles, but also to reach the heart club’s first double. Ending the season on a high note naturally includes raising the trophy in Jamor.

Porto club has achieved the main sporting goal. However, after a league campaign dominated by several records (best defense and best attack in the competition, an unbeatable tournament of 58 games, among others) the trophy is the piece that should fit in an almost perfect season.

He scored 25 doubles in Portuguese football and José Szabo was the first to win the championship and cup in the same season in 1940/1941 with Sporting. The record holder in doubles is Otto Gloria, who with Benfica won both titles three times in the same sporting year (1954/1955, 1956/1957 and 1968/1969).
