In an interview with the Spanish newspaper Marca, Vitor Pereira indicated the end of his association with FC Porto. In 2013, after winning the second championship, the coach did not reach an agreement to renew his contract with the Dragon and left the club.
“I left by my own decision. I didn’t want to renew because I had already spent eight years at FC Porto, five in the academy and three in the main team. I intended, when I did not renew my contract, to go to England and train Everton, but that did not happen and I went to Saudi Arabia, because I wanted to ensure my family’s future from an economic standpoint,” he explained.
How the More football He wrote, Vitor Pereira met in England with Everton management, and joined the final list of candidates, but the British chose Roberto Martinez (former Wigan), the current Portugal coach.
In the conversation with Marca, the Portuguese coach was asked about the fact that he has not yet coached a team from the so-called Big 5. It was in Germany, of course, but TSV 1860 Munich was competing in the second division.
“Maybe I’m a little to blame. I don’t have the patience to wait for the right opportunity to come. For me, football is like breathing. When I start to run out of air, I have to get back on the field. Now I’m a bit calmer, but I know I’ll be back soon.”
Vitor Pereira, who was fired from Flamengo in April 2023, believes he will end up coaching a La Liga side, having been nominated by clubs such as Almeria or Sevilla. “Yes, I think it will happen one day. “I had some possibilities recently, but they didn’t materialize.”
