Rui Vitoria is the New Spartak Manager!
We can confirm that 51 year-old Portuguese football coach Rui Vitoria is the new Spartak Moscow manager. A two-time Portuguese champion with Benfica, Vitoria joins us on a 2 year contract.

After a playing career spent in the lower divisions of Portuguese football, Vitoria gained experience coaching in his native country, managing the likes of Vilafranquense and Fatima. In 2010, Rui guided Paços de Ferreira to an impressive seventh placed finish in the Portuguese top division, and subsequently signed for Vitoria de Guimaraes.

At his namesake club, Vitoria spent a fruitful four years and guided his side to their maiden Portuguese cup win by beating Benfica in the final. Then, he was given the honour that comes with the Benfica job and took charge of a supremely successful period for the club. Not only did the Lisbon outfit win two consecutive Portuguese titles, they stormed to the quarter finals of the Champions League, and won four national cups under Vitoria. While at Benfica, our new coach was credited with developing a number of superstars like Renato Sanches, Victor Lindelof, Ruben Dias and Ederson

Following this, Rui took a slight detour to Saudi Arabia and was appointed as the manager of continental heavyweights Al Nassr. In the Gulf, Vitoria won the Saudi Professional League in his first season, and took the yellow-blues to the semi-finals of the Asian Champions League, where they lost on penalties.

Now, after a short hiatus, Vitoria is back in the European game and will aim to etch a memorable legacy in Moscow.
