"As captain I feel really proud of the players"
Carlos Carneiro highlights his team's ability to manage the Challenge Cup final
"This was one of our objectives at the start of the season. Not everything has went as we would have liked, but we are going into the final stretch with a chance at every one of our objectives", said captain Carlos Carneiro at the final whistle of the Challenge Cup final this weekend.
Obviously ecstatic, the Alvalade skipper added: "We played really intelligently and managed the pace and the result. We won both finals and every single game in this competition. It was really special and this is the trophy I was missing. As captain I fell really proud of my players. This is a fantastic group of lads, packed with quality. We deserve this for the work we have put in. "
