The side also played in Europe for the first time in 39 years, reaching the Europa League quarterfinal last season.

“I feel good. Ready for it. Looking forward to it. Working really hard for it, because it's a new cycle, no matter what you did before, it's about what's in front of us,” Espirito-Santo said.
