Benfica replace Jorge Jesus with Rui Vitoria

11 June 2015, 17:30

Lisbon - Portuguese champions Benfica have named Rui Vitoria as their new coach following the shock departure of Jorge Jesus to bitter rivals Sporting Lisbon.

In a statement released on Thursday, Benfica said they had reached "an agreement in principle with Rui Vitoria on a contract...for the next three seasons."

Vitoria, 45, who worked as a youth coach at Benfica from 2004 to 2006, joins from Vitoria Guimaraes, where he spent the last four years.

He led the northern club to fifth place and Europa League qualification in the campaign just finished.

Jesus enjoyed six successful years with Benfica, winning three league titles, five League Cups and one Portuguese Cup, while he also took them to two Europa League finals.

But he controversially agreed to make the short trip to the Estadio Jose Alvalade to join Sporting, a club he represented as a player, after refusing to sign a new contract with Benfica which would have seen him take a pay cut.
