Domingos José Paciência Oliveira, simply Domingos as a player (Portuguese pronunciation: [duˈmĩɣuʃ]); born January 2, 1969 in Leça da Palmeira), is a former Portuguese football striker, who achieved success with both F.C. Porto and the Portuguese national team.

After completing his accreditation in 2005, he resumed his career as a manager.


Playing career

A F.C. Porto trainee since he was 13, discovered in Atlético de Leça, Domingos proved to be a terrific goalscorer despite being physically weak. Tomislav Ivić eventually decided he should be the replacement for an ageing Fernando Gomes, and made his main squad debut at age 19, being crowned the best scorer in the Portuguese league in 1995–96.

In 1997–98, Domingos moved to the Canary Islands' CD Tenerife, one season after Porto signed prolific striker Mário Jardel. There, he teamed up with Roy Makaay, but never fully adapted to the Spanish league, netting only once in his final season, in a 1–2 home loss against Deportivo Alavés.

Domingos eventually returned to Porto two years later, who outbid Sporting Clube de Portugal at the eleventh hour. While cherished by the crowd, he didn't impose himself as in the past, and retired at the end of the 2000–01. He won seven league titles, six super cups and five cups.

For the national team, Domingos scored nine goals in 34 appearances, including a goal against Croatia at UEFA Euro 1996.

Manager career

After his retirement, Domingos he was assigned to coach Porto's youth teams, and later, the reserves. After completing his level three managing course, Domingos left Porto and was hired as manager of first division team União de Leiria for 2006–07. He also opened a football school in Matosinhos with former Porto teammate Rui Barros.

The following season Domingos took the reins of another top level side, Académica de Coimbra, after Manuel Machado resigned. In his first two years in charge of the Students, he led the side to two consecutive league wins at S.L. Benfica (3–0, 1–0).

In June 2009, Paciência resigned, after receiving an offer from Sporting de Braga, which had just lost manager Jorge Jesus to Benfica.
