Rogério de Sousa Gonçalves (born 1 October 1959) is a Portuguese football manager.

Football career[edit]

Born in the village of Lanheses in Viana do Castelo, Gonçalves started working as a full-time manager in 1990, with hometown club UD Lanheses. In the following nine years he worked exclusively in the lower leagues, also being in charge of A.D. Os Limianos and SC Vianense.

In the summer of 1999, Gonçalves was appointed at Varzim S.C. in the Segunda Liga. He achieved promotion to the Primeira Liga at the end of his second season,[1] but was sacked on 25 November 2001 after only achieving two wins in the first 12 games.

Gonçalves then returned to the second division, going on to work with G.D. Chaves, Associação Naval 1º de Maio and Leixões SC. On 4 March 2006, he re-signed at the second side who now competed in the top level, becoming their fourth coach of the campaign and finally leading them to safety with a 14th-place finish.

In mid-November 2006, Gonçalves replaced fired Carlos Carvalhal at the helm of S.C. Braga, but was himself relieved of his duties after nine matches, making way for his assistant Jorge Costa. On 31 May 2007 he was appointed at division two team S.C. Beira-Mar,[2] being sacked the following February.

Gonçalves signed for Académica de Coimbra in August 2009, becoming the fourth casualty of the top tier season on 2 October after failing to win once in seven league contests.[3] On 6 October 2010 he returned to Naval,[4] being fired due to exactly the same circumstances in December.[5]
