Manuel António Marques Machado (born 4 December 1955 in Oliveira, Guimarães) is a Portuguese football manager.


Coaching career

Machado started his career with his local club Vitória de Guimarães' youth sides, having a head coach spell with lowly S.C. Vila Real in between. After two years with another modest team in the north, A.D. Fafe, he moved to another side in his region, Moreirense FC, helping it promote from the third to the first division in just two years.

Machado then helped Moreirense to a comfortable 12th position in their debut season, finishing ninth in the following campaign, after which he returned to Guimarães.

Subsequently, he signed with C.D. Nacional, helping the Madeirans finish a best ever fifth, with UEFA Cup qualification. After almost two years at Académica de Coimbra, he joined Sporting Clube de Braga, where he did not meet the expectations of a UEFA Cup place, thus being sacked.

Machado rejoined Nacional for 2008–09,[1] bettering the club's best-ever finish, as fourth. However, on 13 December 2009, he announced he would leave the benches for a period, after surgery-related complications; he was replaced by assistant Predrag Jokanović,[2] and eventually left his post at the end of the campaign, replaced by precisely the Serbian.

On 2 June 2010, Machado returned to Vitória Guimarães, taking the Minho side to the Portuguese Cup final in his first season. On 26 August 2011 he left the team, after UEFA Europa League elimination at the hands of Atlético Madrid (0–6 on aggregate, 0–4 home loss in the second game).[3]
