Baltemar José de Oliveira Brito (born 9 January 1952 in Recife, Pernambuco) is a Brazilian retired footballer who played as a central defender,[1] and a current coach.

Playing career[edit]

Brito spent the vast majority of his professional career in Portugal, representing Vitória de Guimarães (no league games played), F.C. Paços de Ferreira (two spells), C.D. Feirense, Rio Ave FC (two stints), Vitória de Setúbal and Varzim SC.

Over the course of eight seasons he amassed top division totals of 198 games and seven goals, in representation of all the clubs except Paços, with which he competed solely in the second level. He retired at the end of the 1987–88 campaign at the age of 36, after suffering top flight relegation with Varzim.[2]

Coaching career[edit]

Brito was in charge of Varzim for two games in his last season as a player, managing two draws. Subsequently he had two spells as head coach with lowly Clube Atlético Macedo de Cavaleiros.

In the 2001–02 season, at União de Leiria, Brito started a link with José Mourinho that would last eight seasons. The assistant was part of a quartet that also included fitness coach Rui Faria, goalkeeping coach Silvino Louro and chief scout André Villas-Boas that followed the young manager from F.C. Porto to Chelsea.

Brito also specialised in audio-visual work to prepare the team for matches. As Mourinho left the Premier League outfit early into the 2007–08 campaign, so did his entire staff. On 5 June 2010 he was appointed head coach at C.F. Os Belenenses in the second division,[3] but was sacked the following month before the season had even started.

On 18 May 2013, after a series of poor results, Brito was fired by Grêmio Esportivo Osasco.[4]
