Técnico will continue at the head of the B team, because the GAME has advanced.
FC Porto announced this Friday the renewal of António Folha’s contract, for two more seasons, until 2024. The coach will therefore continue at the head of the blue and white B team, as O JOGO has advanced in time desired.
The agreement between the coach and Pinto da Costa had been in place since December, regardless of the results of the B team in the rest of the season – the SABSEG League finished in 10th place, with 42 points. The conversation between the two took place in the hospital, the day after Folha’s operation for a cerebral aneurysm, detected after a violent headache and which took several weeks away from technical mastery of secondary education.
In addition to Folha, the other members of the technical team have also extended their respective ties: assistants Paulinho Santos, Fábio Moura and Vítor Moreira, Ricardo Pinheiro (goalkeeping coach) and Pedro Abreu (physical trainer).
Next season will be Folha’s fifth in FC Porto’s ‘bês’, on a journey that began in 2016/17. Between 2018 and 2020, he guides Portimonense, then returns to Porto.
