FC Porto striker Majeed Waris has called on his teammates to forgo their UEFA Champions League disappointment and focus on the Portuguese league and Cup ambitions.

The former Spartak Moscow hitman took to twitter after the stalemate with Liverpool to thank their travelling supporters and urged his team-mates to finish the season strongly.

“Happy to have get a start after a long time and thanks to the fans for their fantastic support. Time to focus on the league and cup now.varmosss Portooooo 🐉🐉💪🏾”
