Years of domestic success - soccer

Domestic success continued to be a hallmark of FC Porto in subsequent years, and 1995-1999 became the highest note of Portuguese domestic competition ever. Following titles by Bobby Robson (1995 and 1996) and António Oliveira (1997 and 1998), Fernando Santos captured a record-setting 5th consecutive title in 1999. Porto later achieved 2nd place in the championship but won the 2000 and 2001 Portuguese Cups (whilst reaching the European Quarterfinals in both seasons) only to replace Fernando Santos with Octávio Machado. Octávio however only had a short stint at Porto. His replacement would be José Mourinho. Sir Robert William Robson, Kt, CBE (born 18 February 1933), commonly known as Bobby Robson (IPA: ), is a former international football player and former manager of several European clubs and the England national football team. ...

1999 Sweep

In the end of the 1998/99 season FCPorto swept the Portuguese professional sports by winning all the competiotions in which it had a professional team: soccer, handball, basketball and rink hockey. These sports constitute the most important team sports in Portugal, plus volleyball, which FCPorto has not had as a team for several years. It also won the swimming national championship which made a total of 5 championship titles in the same year. In Potugal was called the "double penta" making reference to the 5 consecutive championships in soccer.


The José Mourinho era

Mourinho joined Porto in January 2002, the club languishing in 5th place on the table. Mourinho would ensure a UEFA Cup berth for the following season, ending the league in 3rd. Summer of 2002 saw a lot of movement on the transfer market by Porto. The bets consisted mainly on Portuguese players playing in Portugal, yet to prove their true worth, as well as, for the most part, little known foreigners. It most certainly worked and such was Mourinho's impressive work in FC Porto that he managed to lead the club to two glorious seasons in 2003 and 2004, wrapping up consecutive Portuguese titles and a UEFA Cup and Champions League in succession. During this period Pinto da Costa remained somewhat on Mourinho's shadow and allowed him a very firm grip on all matters regarding football. The UEFA Cup (also known as European Cup 3, CE3 or C3) is a football competition for European club teams, organized by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). ...


The post-Mourinho era

Victory in the Champions League final in 2004 meant that Mourinho left Porto, looking for another challenge in a bigger league. He was replaced by Luigi Del Neri, who only lasted 4 weeks on the job. In came Victor Fernandez, who qualified the club for the Champions League last 16 and won the Intercontinental Cup. He was sacked in late January 2005 following a home defeat to Sporting Braga which saw the club lose the championship lead. José Couceiro took over and led the club to a final standing of 2nd in the league. He subsequently resigned his post. Luigi Del Neri (born August 23, 1950 in Aquileia, Udine) is an Italian football manager, currently in office with U.S. Città di Palermo of the Serie A.

In late May 2005, Co Adriaanse, former coach of Willem II, Ajax Amsterdam and AZ Alkmaar, was designated as the new FC Porto coach. Jacobson (Co) Adriaanse (born on July 21, 1947 in Amsterdam, Noord-Holland) is a Dutch football manager and former football player from the Netherlands. ...


Under his guidance, FC Porto has predominantly become an attacking team and the results have been mixed, solid performances mixed with severe defensive flaws. European results in particular were terrible and Porto suffered a humiliating exit from the UEFA Champions League in the groups stage.


However, Co Adriaanse still guided Porto to a domestic double, wrapping up the title with 2 games to spare and beating Vitória de Setúbal for the Cup final.


Adriaanse resigned in the pre-season to the 2006/7 season, due to internal disputes with the clubs board, and was subsequently replaced by ex-Benfica and Braga manager Jesualdo Ferreira, who had only just joined arch-rivals Boavista that season, and left without managing a single competitive match for Boavista.

Pinto da Costa was formally accused of corruption on Tuesday, June 12th of 2007, along with Reinaldo Teles, another member of FC Porto's administration. [3]


In December 2006 his former partner - Carolina Salgado, published the book Eu, Carolina ("I, Carolina") where she made serious accusations against Pinto da Costa (including match fixing, bribing referees with prostitutes and ordering the beating of Gondomar councilman Ricardo Bexiga). [4] [5] Pinto da Costa denied all the accusations made by the former partner Carolina and claims she tried to use the book to blackmail him. Carolina Salgado is the former partner of FC Portos president Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa. ...

Following the result of the inquiry, Pinto da Costa has vowed to appeal the two-year ban placed on him in order to clear his name as well as the club's. In a short interview, he stated that, "We will not appeal the points deductions and we will still have a 14 or 15 point lead. But FC Porto’s honour will be salvaged because I, personally, as president and a citizen, will appeal on Monday to the Justice Council. After this appeal we will wait to see the truth come out and it will allow us to show there is no reason for FC Porto to have been penalised." [6]
