Vítor Pereira was André Villas-Boas's assistant when FC Porto won the 2010/11 UEFA Europa League, and is promising his Dragons will be "more aggressive" as he embarks on his first season as the club's coach. Villas-Boas's move to Chelsea FC and star striker Falcao's departure for Club Atlético de Madrid have robbed Porto of some key personnel, but their UEFA Champions League Group G opponents can still expect fearsome opponents, with the 43-year-old coach passionate about the club's continental quest. "Seeing Porto playing in the Champions' League is something special," he said. "I get goosebumps when I hear the UEFA Champions League anthem."
