Portuguese Manager Has Expressed Interest In Joining Newcastle



Sky Sports is reporting Porto manager Sergio Conceicao as another manager that is interested in succeeding Rafa Benitez at Newcastle when his contract expires on June 30th.

The report has minimal details of his supposed interest with no quotes or sources so there may not be much to it. He is not out of a job so there may be something in this link.

Conceicao is a 44-year-old Portuguese manager who has been in charge of six clubs since first taking charge of third division Portuguese club Olhanense in 2012.

He has been the coach of Porto FC for the past two seasons winning the Super Liga title in 2018 and finishing second behind Benfica this past year.

Prior to that, he coached Nantes for half a season leading them out of the relegation zone before being appointed as the Porto boss.

The FC Nantes job was his only one outside of Portugal. While in France though, he surprisingly turned down the opportunity to replace Claudio Ranieri at Leicester City to remain with the French club.

He does seem to have something about him and we respect that he remained with Nantes in February 2017 after having just joined the club the prior December.

That shows a bit of loyalty and maybe he is now open to coming to the Premier League even though Porto is a top club in Portugal.

    I won’t be contacting him again , and I will not pester him

    I just wanted an answer

    I got 3

    As I’ve mentioned a couldn’t care if no one believes me

    I have no reason to lie , i haven’t been on for a while after Rafa left as I was gutted , didn’t know what to say

    It’s an embarrassment the way he found out

    Club is a mess

    OK: if there ends up being big screens on the town moor I promise I will not question anything anybody says about a boycott being effective ever again.

    Schizophrenia

    Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe mental disorder that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. People with schizophrenia may seem like they have lost touch with reality

    When it’s over

    Either deal off / Ashley mugging us off again

    Or deal on , miracle

    I will send you the proof first

    I have no idea why you won’t believe me, i am not saying it’s going to happen

    I am only saying what I have been told by the guy who released the statements

    I am not the first to contact him and get an answer

    Ashley , like you say probably has no intention of selling , yet he is a mug

    He’s a disgrace , hence the reason I don’t go anymore and won’t until he’s gone

    I was dubious about BZG, now I think they are genuine , that’s all

    Once I show you I want an apology

    Ps – I found your GRIIIBIIIITTTTT

    VERY funny when Rafa left , I was crying inside but your post was very funny and perfectly timed

    On the face of it, getting Mourinho in at Rafa’s expense doesn’t make a lot of sense in the short to medium term but what’s to say Jose hasn’t been involved with the BZG bid all along?
    Could easily have been his idea.
    I like 90% of fans would prefer Rafa but no doubt 100% would prefer BZG with anyone than the slug’s dystopian vision of our future.
    Announcement soon, believe it

    happened at chelsea did it not? they replaced a reputable manager with another why not at newcastle??

    rafa has brought newcastle and the fans together again a place where they havent been in years he would be my first choice over anyone at this time but realisticly what has he done since liverpool? hes a shadow of what he was at liverpool hurts saying that but you need to realistic here

    Unfortunately for Mike Ashley the downside to hiring such a high profile manager like Rafa to pull him out of the sh!t has just truly exposed his ambition or lack of it on a very public scale. Any manager coming in is coming for purely selfish reasons and a pay cheque only. He knows he will not be able to achieve success and will be more than happy just to receive his survival bonus, I can’t see how the fans than haven’t packed in will be able to get behind such a man knowing he is an Ashley puppet.

    Schizophrenia is a very nasty illness and to accuse someone on the blog of having that illness on the blog is way out of order.

    Disagree with them or even continue with your stupid misplaced shill accusations but do not get that nasty!

    Regarding the Manager’s position at Newcastle United FC

    My preferred options are

    1 Bring back Rafa…..
    I think 99.5% of fans would jump for joy if this was to occur!

    2 Chris Hughton
    Chris is well respected on Tyneside and I’m sure would do a good holding job for NUFC

    3 David Moyes
    Was my first choice before Toon appointed Rafa! I thought he did a very sound job at Everton and wasn’t given a fair crack of the whip at Man United. Forget about his role at Sunderland – they were in freefall before he arrived & they were probably a bad choice on his part.

    After that well who knows, did I hear someone shout Pardew? Errm no thanks!

    What PR frog? Yes, I am an Ashley shill.

    I have major doubts about any boycott having any effect on Ashley or Sky. If that is defending the current owner, then guilty! Someone called Count seems to think I am winding people up. I am not. If he talks to me again I will probably drop the “o” when I reply.

    same idea with any takeover spend the money and theres a high chance success will follow

    if they do buy newcastle it would be theirs to implement any plan which way they want would it not

    rafa or no rafa just move on

    Or you gonna sit on your speckled log and wait for HMRC to finish the investigation into his “undisclosed payments”

    Just on Rafa, I was told a snippet by a mate of mine who was at SJP earlier this week for a kids’ presentation evening. They had a stadium tour afterwards and he was in a group with one of the NUFC youth coaches he knows. The coach told him that Rafa was in last Thursday to clear his desk.

    That suggests that it was neither an impulsive decision from Ashley or unexpected from Rafa.

    Frog: what has Mike Ashley done to prevent any protests? I don’t think he cares. He shows utter contempt for Toon fans.

    I don’t disagree with boycotts, go ahead. I just don’t think they will work. And there certainly wont be big screens on the town moor.

    Not trying to belittle or put down anybody. And NO. I do not have any better ideas.

    Oh and its not just the HMRC now
    I think parliament will get there first,then use them to investigate him

    http://www.fsf.org.uk/latest-news/view/chester-mps-bill-calls-for-tough-and-independent-regulation-of-football

    He has worked closely with the Football Supporters’ Association (FSA) to prepare the bill which mandates that clubs being mismanaged should face scrutiny from a body which is independent of the clubs.

    You might want to email your local MP,im sure i have

    The body would have powers to undertake independent and forensic audits of club directors and financial activities when concerns have been expressed about mismanagement.

    Droppy, you can be an alt shill or an alt non-shill. But if you’re a shill then all your alts are also shills, whereas if you’re an alt then you have no choice to be a shill or not a shill.

    I hope that’s clear.
