Custódio named SC Braga manager

SC Braga today announced that Custódio Castro is the new head coach following Ruben Amorim’s departure to Sporting CP.

This is a step up for Custódio who has been leading SC Braga’s U17 side until today. He has done very well with the Juniores, who are 2nd in the Juniores B Liga. His side have won 13, drawn 7 and lost just 4. However, the leap from U17 football to men’s senior football is a huge one and it remains seen how he will fare in charge of one of Portugal’s biggest club.

Another point to note is that Custódio , who is currently manoeuvring his way through his coaching badges is at present, just a Level 1 coach. Meaning he is even less qualified than predecessor Rúben Amorim who is a Level 2 graded coach. This means that Custódio cannot officially be named as manager or assistant manager. Braga will have to be crafty to ensure he can still coach on match days in some capacity.

How Braga manage to solve this issue remains to be seen but one thing is for sure, they knew prior to appointing Custódio that this would be an issue so it’s safe to say they have a plan in mind.

Braga’s next match is tomorrow against Portimonense at home.
