Matheus Silva Ferreira da Costa (born 14 January 1987) is a Brazilian football manager, currently in charge of Paraná.


Born in Curitiba, Costa played futsal at Paraná but retired at early age. He subsequently worked at Atlético Paranaense, Coritiba and Internacional before joining Levir Culpi's staff at Fluminense in 2016.[1]

On 7 January 2017, Costa was named Wagner Lopes' assistant at Paraná.[2] In July, after Lopes and Cristian de Souza were both sacked, he acted as an interim during a 4–1 Série B home routing of Brasil de Pelotas;[3] after the arrival of Lisca, he returned to his previous role.

On 2 September 2017, Lisca was sacked after altercations with the club's board and supposedly assaulting Costa;[4] he was later named interim manager. Late in the month, he was named permanent manager until the end of the year,[5] and achieved promotion to the Série A.

Costa still left the club after his contract expired, and was appointed manager of Joinville on 13 March 2018;[6] exactly two months later, he was sacked.[7] On 13 August, he was named Tcheco's assistant at Coritiba.[8]

In 2019, Costa also acted as interim at Coxa on two occasions, both after the dismissal of Argel Fucks. On 3 April of that year, he returned to Paraná, replacing sacked Dado Cavalcanti.[9]
