Porto recorded their sixth successive win in all competition against Fostiras in the Greek Cup on Wednesday evening, an occasion which coincided with the confirmation of their new coach.

Gonzalez took over the reins of the Karaiskakis Stadium in 2013 and led the club to back-to-back Superleague titles after setting off with a Cup win in his first season. He left Olympiakos with the Greek champions trailing PAOK Thesaloniki by just one point in the league table.

Olympiakos will face Dnipro in the last 32 of the UEFA Europa League having failed to advance into the round of 16 of the Uefa Champions League, finishing one point behind Group A runners-up Juventus.
