Playing career

As a player, he was one of the best ever central defenders of Portuguese football, representing S.L. Benfica, from 1968 to 1975 and from 1977 to 1984. He also played for Paris Saint-Germain for the seasons of 1975 to 1977. His first appearance for the Portuguese national team was at only 18, in a 3-0 win over Romania on 27 October,1968 in Lisbon the first game of the World Cup 1970 qualifying stage. He represented the national team 64 times, 61 for Benfica and 3 for Paris Saint-Germain, scoring 6 goals, but failed to appear in a major tournament. He played at the Independence Cup in Brazil in 1972, where Portugal lost the final to Brazil 1-0. His last cap for the national team was during the Euro 1984 qualifying stages, in the only defeat that Portugal suffered, on 27 April,1983 beaten 0-5 by USSR in Moscow. An injury prevented him from representing the national team for the rest of the qualifying games or in the Euro Cup finals.[1]

Managerial career

After spells with Sporting Braga and SC Salgueiros, he led Portugal to the semi-finals of Euro 2000 before taking charge of Morocco and South Korea. He was named Tunisia coach in June 2008[2] and on 18 November 2009 the Portuguese coach was fired after a 1-0 loss to Mozambique which crushed Tunisia's 2010 World Cup dream and ended the 12 year World Cup appearance streak. [3]Faouzi Benzarti, head coach of l'Esperance de Tunis has taken Coelho's position and will lead the team this January in the 2010 African Cup of Nations which will be played in Angola. [4].
