portimonense in limbo simply algarve magazine

After losing four Primeira Liga games on the trot, Portimonense bounced back with a final day 3-1 victory over P.Ferreira and in the process sent the team from the ‘European Capital of Furniture’ spiralling into the Segunda Liga next season. Portimonense finished mid-table in tenth place but will now have to look for a new coach as Vítór Oliveira could not reach agreement over a new contract so will leave the club at the end of June. Oliveira prefers to coach in an environment where he can challenge for titles, in his career, he has had twenty-one managerial positions, and has taken five clubs up to the top flight: P.Ferreira (1990–91), União Leiria (1997–98), Leixões (2006–07), Moraines (2013–14) and Portimonense last year. Top scorer Fabrício is rumoured to be on his way with SC Braga and Olympia (Greece) chasing his signature. Paulinho, on-loan last season from FC Porto, returns to join the Primeira Liga champions.
