Raul António Águas (born 12 January 1949 in Lobito, Portuguese Angola) is a former Angolan-born Portuguese football striker and manager.

Football career

Águas started his career having an unsuccessful spell at S.L. Benfica, moving after three years to Académica de Coimbra; he finished his career in 1984 at 35, after stints for União de Tomar, Belgium's S.V. Zulte Waregem, Oliveira do Bairro SC, Portimonense SC and GD Chaves.

Águas would have a more prominent career as manager, starting with his last club, and helping the lowly northern side qualify for the UEFA Cup, after it finished an all-time best fifth in the league; he then moved to Boavista F.C. for a single season.

After a third place with Sporting Clube de Portugal in 1990, Águas successively managed Sporting de Braga, Vitória de Setúbal - four years, two in the second division - F.C. Paços de Ferreira and C.S. Marítimo.

In 1995, he joined António Oliveira's staff as the Portuguese national team prepared for UEFA Euro 1996; after the team's failure to qualify for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, the pair was sacked. Águas returned to club action with former side Académica, for one year, then spent four years out of professional football, after which he was again assistant, to former Benfica player and national team boss Artur Jorge with FC Spartak Moscow, in Russia.

Personal

Águas' uncle, José Águas, as well as his cousin Rui, played with great success for Benfica and Portugal. The latter also represented F.C. Porto, winning accolades there as well.
