Laguna lift the Mexican championship

Santos Laguna won the Mexican championship with a 2-1 home victory over Monterrey in the second leg of the Clausura final. Oribe Peralta has been the key for Santos, scoring the two late goals that gave them victory over Apertura winners Tigres UANL in the second leg of their semi-final last weekend and also finding the net in both legs of the final.

"I'm now at the most important stage in my career (but) I have a lot of dreams still to fulfil," the 28-year-old said.

"I still have a contract here for several years and I hope to stay on," added the former Monterrey player when asked about interest from other clubs.

It was Monterrey coach Victor Vucetich's first defeat in 13 finals. He steered his team to the CONCACAF Champions League title this season.
