Guimarães pair make 'dream' Porto move

Midfielder Tiago Rodrigues and winger Ricardo Pereira expressed their delight at moving from Vitória SC to FC Porto, the former saying it was his "dream to play for this club".

FC Porto have signed midfielder Tiago Rodrigues and winger Ricardo Pereira from Portuguese Cup holders Vitória SC.

The players, both Dragons fans, have each penned a five-year contract with the Liga champions, who on Monday announced ex-FC Paços de Ferreira boss Paulo Fonseca as the successor to coach Vítor Pereira.

"I had a dream to play for this club and I will always help the team," said Portuguese Under-21 international Tiago Rodrigues. Ricardo, 19, added: "Playing for Porto you can grow more than at any other club. I want to grab my chances and push on."
