António Conceição da Silva Oliveira (born 6 December 1961), known as Toni Conceição, is a Portuguese professional football manager, currently for Nea Salamis Famagusta, and former footballer who played as a right back.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Maximinos, Braga District, Conceição played one full decade as a professional, making his debut in the Primeira Liga with local S.C. Braga. In 1984, he helped F.C. Vizela reach the top flight for the first time in the club's history.

Subsequently, Conceição returned to Braga. He appeared in a career-best 36 games in the 1987–88 season, helping his team to the 11th position whilst acting as captain.[1]

Conceição signed for FC Porto in the 1989 summer. After only one competitive appearance in two years combined, he retired at the age of 29, eventually returning late in the decade in futsal. He gained one cap for Portugal following the infamous Saltillo Affair which resulted in the defection of several players, featuring the full 90 minutes in a 0–0 friendly with Sweden in Gothenburg, on 12 October 1988.

Coaching career[edit]

Conceição started his managerial career at S.C. Braga B, spending three full seasons in the third level. He acted as interim to the main squad during one match late into 2002–03, a 2–2 away draw against S.C. Beira Mar.

In the following years, Conceição worked with Associação Naval 1º de Maio, C.F. Estrela da Amadora, Vitória de Setúbal[2][3] and C.D. Trofense, with all sides but the third competing in the Segunda Liga and all attaining promotion. In January 2009 he moved abroad, being appointed at Liga I's CFR Cluj and winning the Cupa României.

After three months at the helm of C.F. Os Belenenses after signing in December 2009,[4] winning only three games in 16 and suffering top level relegation, Conceição returned to Romania, where he coached FC Braşov and FC Astra Ploiești.[5]

Toni returned to his country in October 2012, being appointed at Braga B who was having its first experience in the second tier.[6] He then led Moreirense F.C. to the division two championship,[7] leaving at the end of the campaign.
