Copenhagen boss delighted with 10th title win

Ariel Jacobs said the determination to regain the league crown kept his side going after they wrapped up the Danish Superliga with a 0-0 draw at city rivals Brondby
Copenhagen coach Ariel Jacobs says the desire to bring the trophy back to the club was enough motivation for his side to secure their 10th Danish Superliga title following a 0-0 draw with Brondby on Sunday.

The result left the Loverne on 64 points, 10 ahead of second-placed Nordsjaelland, with three fixtures left to play.

"The main goal before the season was to get the championship back," Jacobs told TV 3.

"The [automatic qualification for the] Champions League comes as a good bonus, but the main thing was that we brought the title back to FCK.

"We were very stable in the first half of the season, when we delivered quality performances, We created our lead there and kept it long.

"At Easter we only got two points out of nine, and Nordsjaelland came close ... They were a good competitor in the end, but all in all I think we deserve this championship."

Copenhagen captain Lars Jacobsen also spoke of his delight after his side's title-winning result.

"This is fantastic," said the 33-year-old. "Winning championships is something you never get tired of, or grow too old for.

"We may not have been at our best today, but that counts for nothing right now. I think we deserved to win the match, but I will take a point!" he added.
