Brisbane coach credits never say die attitude after title win

3:29 pm on 6 May 2014

The Brisbane football coach Mike Mulvey says he never doubted his side would win the A-league final despite trailing the Western Sydney Wanderers 1-0 with just five minutes remaining.

The league's most combustible player, Besart Berisha, provided the fireworks for a dramatic Brisbane triumph, duly delivering in a fairytale farewell.

Bound for Melbourne Victory next season, the Albanian international signed off with a late equaliser before Brazilian Henrique gave the Roar their third title in four years with a goal in the second period of extra time.

Mulvey says his belief never waned.

Brisbane are the first team to win three A-league titles.
