Porto have confirmed head coach Sergio Conceicao has committed his future to the club through to 2021.

The Primeira Liga leaders face title rivals Benfica, who are a point off the top, on Saturday and delivered a pre-match boost by announcing a contract renewal for Conceicao, who had two spells with Porto as a player.

Conceicao, linked with taking charge of Premier League side Everton last year, has led Porto to the last 16 of the Champions League this season.

Porto trail Roma 2-1 after the first leg of their tie with the return game set to be played at Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday.

Conceicao’s side are also on track to reach the final of the Taca de Portugal, holding a 3-0 lead after the first leg of their last-four clash with Braga.

“When I speak of my love for Porto, it’s something that I really mean,” Conceicao told the club’s official website. “It’s true love and not just words.”

Porto won the title by seven points last season, losing only twice in a stunning campaign that ended a four-year period of Benfica dominance.
