Hiring Jorge Jesus’ former deputy solves the problem relating to Paulo Turra’s qualifications.
João Costeado is back at V. Guimarães, now to be part of the technical team led by Paulo Turra. The 64-year-old coach may even be on the bench for Saturday’s match against Tondela, in the League Cup, solving, this time, the problem related to the issue of Paulo Turra’s qualifications. Luiz Felipe Scolari’s former assistant struggles with the lack of equivalence necessary to have the IV level in Portugal – required of League coaches -, having even appeared in the last match sheets as assistant coach.
João Costeado is UEFA Pro-level and is back at a club he represented as a player and assistant coach. The last passage through V. Guimarães happened 20 years ago, then as assistant to Jorge Jesus.
