Coaching career[edit]

Carlos Azenha started his career off at local club Vitória Setúbal as assistant manager from 2000 to 2002 under the management of Jorge Jesus. After the spell ended in 2002 he moved to different clubs across the world which include China's Changsha Ginde and Egyptian giants Al-Ahly under the management of Portuguese legend Toni. After nearly a two-year spell across the world Carlos Azenha returned to his homeland to manage a brief spell with Boavista under the management of Jesualdo Ferreira.[1] In 2006 after Jesualdo Ferreira left for FC Porto he went to manage FC Porto for two seasons as assistant manager.[2] In May 2009, he signed a contract to become the new boss of league strugglers Vitória Setúbal to lead them out of danger from the relegation places. On 14 September 2009 he resigned as coach due to bad results with only a point from the first four games and sitting last in the table. A replacement has not been named yet, but it could be former Naval coach Ulisses Morais.[3]
