Jesus Manuel Corona is living his best moments since arriving in the Old Continent; he's an undisputed starter with Porto and is giving his best season in term of assists.

His performance and compromise with the team motivated Porto's management to make an effort to renew the contract of the Mexican and his coach Sérgio Conceição is thankful for that.

"I feel pleased, 'Tecatito' has a lot of quality, which got him the regularity he wanted. What I see is an improvement, emotionally at the moment he's more stable, calmer even."

The Portuguese strategist stressed the potential 'Tecatito' Corona has had, and the good season he's having so far, " We have a quality player that's above the average, FC Porto is celebrating."

In 40 matches Jesús Corona has played with the Dragons throughout this year, the Mexican has five goals and ten assists, besides reaching the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League.
