The goal that sparked Benfica's victory (2-0) against Paços de Ferreira was scored by João Mário, who was elected the "Man of the Match" by the Benfiquistas in the game from matchday 17 of the Liga Bwin.

"It [the award] has a special meaning because the team won. It's always nice when we get individual awards, and the team gets the three points. We had a great week of work, we are working very well, a little patience is needed, and things will get better. New coach, new ideas, but we are on the right track", highlighted the Portuguese international.

"The fans are always with us, I just have to thank them. The support is spectacular at Estádio da Luz. We also play at home next week and expect more fans in the stadium so we can beat Moreirense", finished the number 20.
