Custódio departs SC Braga

Custódio, the man brought in to replace Rúben Amorim following his exit, has stepped down from his position as first team manager.

He presided over Braga for just six matches, losing three, drawing two and losing the other two. His last involvement as first team manager came last night in a 3-2 defeat away at Rio Ave.

The club hoped he would replicate Amorim’s success during his short tenure as he made the same jump up from the youth sides to the senior team but for Cústodio, this hasn’t been the case.

The club officially announced that Custódio requested his own departure with immediate effect. Artur Jorge, who played 265 games for SC Braga and has most recently been head coach of the U19 Braga team, leading them to the U19 North Championship title, going unbeaten in the process, and into the U19 Championship Phase II.
