José Morais wins the second K-League in a row in South Korea
Remarkable! The portuguese coach won his second straight title in 2 years working in South Korea
Jeonbuk Motors, coached by José Morais, made history on Sunday in South Korea by winning the K-League championship for a record eighth time with a 2-0 victory over Daegu FC.
Two goals from Cho Gyu-sung also gave Jeonbuk the distinction of becoming the first club to win four consecutive titles in the league’s 38-year history.
It was the second championship for coach Jose Morais, former assistant to Jose Mourinho at Porto, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea.
“Last year we needed a little help to win but this year we had it in our control,” the Portuguese coach said. “We were always confident that we would become champions and that mindset helped us through.”
