Hundreds of 'lions' supporters dressed in the colours of the new national champion did not miss the call and practically filled the Praça do Município, in Lisbon, with coach Rúben Amorim and the Swedish striker being the most applauded, after both pointed to the conquest of the 'queen' competition, on Sunday, against FC Porto.

"I think we've already had the party we had to have. We have a game on Sunday, so we'd better pack up our things and get going. Now seriously, I want you to know that our bodies are here, but our heads are already in Jamor", said the coach, on the balcony of the City Council, after having been greatly cheered during the speeches of the Mayor of Lisbon, Carlos Moedas, and the president of Sporting, Frederico Varandas.

The great figure of the Lisbon emblem and of the championship, given the 29 goals scored in the debut season, also addressed the immense fans, who painted the Lisbon square in 'green and white' with shirts, scarves and smoke pots.

"Sportinguistas, thank you very much for this fantastic season. But we're not finished yet, there's still one game to go and we have one more title to win", recalled the forward.

With the microphone passing from hand to hand, Danish midfielder Morten Hjulmand, one of the team's pillars in the season, pulled the fans by shouting and repeating 'Sporting' very loudly.

Before, the first to speak was the equipment technician Paulinho, an unavoidable figure in the club: "We are here for the party and on Monday we will be here again with the Cup [of Portugal] in our hands. Long live Sporting, Long live Sporting, Long live Sporting".

If the wardrobe manager Paulinho received much applause at the end of the afternoon, Paulinho, the striker, to the sound of the adaptation of the original 'Freed From Desire', left the crowd euphoric and even more excited.

However, it was the Portuguese fado singer Cuca Roseta who probably starred in the musical moment of the afternoon, by singing the well-known Sporting song 'o mundo sabe que', before a 'sea' of fans singing in unison and with scarves raised.

The exit from the balcony, an hour after arriving at the site, did not happen without Luís Neto, one of the most beloved players who will leave the club at the end of the season, having the last word for those present, asking if they wanted "Nuno Santos as captain", with a huge ovation following being enlightening and leaving the left winger emotional.
