Sérgio Agostinho de Oliveira Vieira (born 15 January 1983) is a Portuguese football manager.


Born in Póvoa de Lanhoso, Braga, Vieira was a forward during his playing days. A S.C. Braga youth graduate, he retired at the age of 21 while playing for FC Amares, and started studying.[1]

Vieira's first managerial experiences were at Sport Lisboa e Cartaxo and Clube de Condeixa, in the regional leagues. After being a tactical coach at Naval 1º de Maio, Académica de Coimbra, Braga (two stints) and Sporting CP,[2] he moved to Brazil.[3]

Vieira was appointed manager of Atlético Paranaense's under-23 squad on 3 July 2015; he was signed by the club in January.[4] Late in the month, however, he was named at the helm of Guaratinguetá, as both clubs sealed a partnership.[5]

Vieira took charge of Guará with the side seriously threatened with relegation in Série C, but managed to avoid the drop after achieving four wins and one draw in nine matches.[6] On 28 September he returned to Furacão, being appointed interim manager after the dismissal of Milton Mendes;[7] he remained in charge for two matches, achieving one win and one loss.

On 11 November 2015, Vieira was appointed Ferroviária manager, after another partnership with Atlético was established.[8] During his spell at the club he impressed, after drawing with Corinthians and defeating Palmeiras;[9] on 4 April, however, after the club's qualification chances were null and relegation became a serious threat, he was sacked.[10]

On 4 June 2016 Vieira was named América Mineiro manager in Série A, replacing fired Givanildo Oliveira.[11]

On 3 June 2018, Vieira was appointed as the Manager of F.C. Famalicão, replacing Dito.[12] He decided to resign on 18 March 2019.[13]
