"Today I am happy to say that this group is the most united I have known. We deserved this title.
"Only our families know how we have lived. I am happy because we showed a perfect state of mind after so many struggles and sacrifices, with players who are injured and came back even stronger. This is a wonderful group."
There are still three rounds remaining in the Brazilian season but Fluminense have opened up a 10 point gap at the top of the table.
