Sérgio Conceição has joined the Doyen Sports roster. The premier sports agency will now manage the former Portuguese international's career, with a number of options on the table for the young coach.
In his fledgeling yet promising management career, Sergio Conceição has already led SC Braga to the final of the Portuguese Cup, as well as strong performances in the League.
At only 41, Sérgio Conceição already boasts an impressive 150 games managed in the Portuguese 1st Division, the Liga NOS. His latest job saw him manage Vitória Guimarães, one of the most succesful clubs in Portugal outside the big three.
