Roger De Sá (born Rogério Paulo Cesar de Sá on 1 October 1964 in Maputo, Mozambique) is a South African football manager and the current head coach of Premier Soccer League club Platinum Stars. De Sá is a former footballer and played as goalkeeper.
De Sá was born to Portuguese settlers in Lourenço Marques, now known as Maputo, Mozambique on 1 October 1964. He is the son of Octávio Augusto César de Sá (1935–1990), himself a former goalkeeper who played for Sporting Lisbon between 1956 and 1960.
After fleeing Mozambique in 1974, he moved to South Africa with his family.
De Sá started his professional career after Kwikot Benoni coach Jingles Pereira, who knew De Sá's father, knew that the goalkeeper was not playing professional football, promptly signing the player.
In September 2012, De Sá was appointed as the coach for Orlando Pirates. Before his appointment to Orlando Pirates, De Sá took over the full coaching reins at Bidvest Wits in 2001. He was chosen as PSL Coach of the Season after the 2002–03 season.
De Sá rejoined The Students in June 2007 after an absence of two years which he spent coaching Engen Santos.
He also acted as Bafana's goalkeeping coach during Carlos Queiroz's reign.
