Augusto Soares Inácio (born 1 February 1955 in Lisbon) is a retired Portuguese football left defender, and a current coach.

Having represented both Sporting Clube de Portugal and F.C. Porto as a professional, he went on to have a lengthy managerial career, in four different countries.

Playing career

Inácio played for Sporting Clube de Portugal and F.C. Porto, were he won several national championships and cups. He would start in both Porto's European competition finals the club played in the 80's: the 1–2 against Juventus in the 1983–84 European Cup Winners' Cup, and the 1986–87 European Cup, won against FC Bayern Munich.

Inácio gained 25 caps for the Portuguese national team, mainly for Porto; his debut came on December 5, 1976, a 2–1 win over Cyprus, in the 1978 World Cup qualifiers. He represented the nation at UEFA Euro 1984 and 1986 FIFA World Cup, playing his last international in the latter, a 1–3 group stage loss to Morocco, on July 11.

Managerial career

After ending his career, Inácio became a football coach. One of his first stops was at former side Porto, as part of the Bobby Robson-led coaching staff, helping the northerners to the league; his first head coach assignment arrived with another former club, as he led Sporting to its first title in 18 years, in 1999–2000.[1] Subsequently, he managed G.D. Chaves, C.S. Marítimo, Vitória de Guimarães and S.C. Beira-Mar.

In the 2005–06 season, the Aveiro team won the second level, thus achieving promotion. However, Inácio would be sacked just nine games into the following campaign, leaving Beira-Mar with only six points. He then went on to manage Ionikos F.C. in the Greek League, but resigned on January 15, 2007, after a heavy defeat to Panathinaikos FC.

Just ten days later, Inácio moved to Iran, with Foolad FC, signing until June. Despite Foolad's relegation to the second division, he signed a contract extension for the next season. On May 2008, he took the reins of Grupo Desportivo Interclube, in Luanda, Angola.

Inácio was sacked in the summer of 2009 and, on September 12, he reached an agreement with Associação Naval 1º de Maio, for a return to Portugal in a one year-deal.[2] At this time in the season, Naval had just one point from four games, and dismissed Ulisses Morais.
