Tiago's "insecure" goodbye

The former Atlético de Madrid player asked to leave the position of coach at the Portuguese club in disagreement with the board. It was his first experience on the bench.


Tiago Mendes is no longer coach of the Portuguese Vitoria de Guimaraes. The former Atlético de Madrid footballer enjoyed his first experience on a bench as first coach, but has had to put an end to his time at Los Conquistadores. From Portugal, Tiago's discrepancies with the directive are pointed out due to the reinforcements carried out as the main cause.

The club has issued a harsh statement announcing the departure of the 39-year-old coach. In this note they announce their surprise at Tiago's decision and justify their decision as an act of "insecurity." "Taking into account that all the decisions made in relation to the main team had the participation and agreement of the coach and that he always had total autonomy to exercise his leadership, the Administration believes that a position of this nature, even at the beginning of the season and in a week that the coach attends the UEFA Pro course, can only be received as a manifestation of insecurity that is incompatible with Vitória SC ", reads part of the statement.

The Portuguese coach had led Vitoria in three games with a balance of one victory (against Paços Ferreira); a draw against Rio Ave and a defeat. In his debut against Os Belenenses. Tiago, who hung up his boots in 2017, was a campaign in Atlético de Madrid's organization chart with Cholo Simeone and Mono Burgos. After collaborating since then in the Portugal U-20 team, he decided to accept the offer to coach Vitoria de Guimaraes in the NOS league. The Portuguese was on Peter Lim's agenda to occupy the Valencian bench but finally Javi Gracia was chosen.
