Vítor Manuel Oliveira (born 17 November 1953) is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a midfielder, and a current manager.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Matosinhos, Oliveira's senior career spanned 12 seasons, nine of which were spent in the top division where he appeared in a total of 220 games, scoring 11 goals. In the category he represented Leixões SC, F.C. Famalicão, S.C. Espinho, S.C. Braga and Portimonense SC; in his last year as a professional, he played 23 matches (one goal) for the latter as it finished fifth and qualified for the UEFA Cup for the first and only time in its history.[1]

Oliveira retired in June 1985 at the age of 31. In the second level, he played for U.S.C. Paredes and Famalicão.

Manager career[edit]

Immediately after retiring Oliveira begun his coaching career, with Portimonense, being fired midway through the 1986–87 season. In the following years he worked almost exclusively with F.C. Paços de Ferreira in division two, achieving promotion in 1991 as champions and retaining league status in the following campaign.

After three full seasons in the main category with Gil Vicente FC, Oliveira worked with several clubs in the first and second divisions, promoting from the latter level with U.D. Leiria, C.F. Os Belenenses and Leixões. Early into 2007–08 he replaced fired Paulo Duarte at the helm of Leiria,[2][3] but only managed to lead his side to three wins in his 21 games in charge (14 losses) as the season ended in top flight relegation.

After working with former club Leixões as director of football in 2008–09, Oliveira resumed his career in the second division, with C.D. Trofense, C.D. Aves, F.C. Arouca[4] and Moreirense FC. He achieved several promotions during his career.[5]
