Football careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Born in Matosinhos, Gomes started coaching in his early 20s, beginning with the youth teams of Clube Futebol de Valadares. He also worked as an assistant at F.C. Paços de Ferreira and S.C. Covilhã.

From 1998 to 2003, Gomes worked as a fitness coach with Gil Vicente FC, Paços and S.L. Benfica. He started 2003–04 as manager of Paços in the Primeira Liga, and was fired after seven losses in the first eight games. The club's season eventually ended in relegation.[2]

Gomes spent most of the following years in the second division. In 2005–06 he had his second spell in Portugal's top division, drawing two matches and losing three at U.D. Leiria.

Work with Jesualdo FerreiraEdit

In late May 2008, Gomes was hired by FC Porto as part of Jesualdo Ferreira's staff. He spent four seasons as Ferreira's assistant at Porto, Málaga CF and Panathinaikos FC.[3][4]

VideotonEdit

On 21 January 2013, Videoton appointed Gomes as their new manager; he replaced his compatriot Paulo Sousa at the helm of the Hungarian side.[5] He led the team to fourth place in Nemzeti Bajnokság I in his only full season, also losing the final of the Ligakupa to Diósgyőri VTK (1–2).[6]

ArabiaEdit

Gomes then spent two seasons as head coach of Al-Taawoun FC in the Saudi Professional League. On 30 May 2016 he joined Al-Ahli Saudi FC in the same league, signing a three-year deal after Christian Gross did not renew his contract.[7] In early October, however, he was sacked and replaced by Gross.[8]

Days later, Gomes succeeded Pablo Repetto at UAE Pro League's Baniyas Club who were struggling at the start of the campaign.[9] He was fired on 28 January 2017 with the team still in last place, having taken four points from 12 games.[10]

Gomes returned to Al-Taawoun on 20 March 2017, following the dismissal of Constantin Gâlcă.[11] He was succeeded by compatriot Pedro Emanuel on 7 May the following year.[12]

ReadingEdit

Gomes was appointed coach of EFL Championship club Reading on 22 December 2018, replacing caretaker Scott Marshall.[13] With only two home defeats in the second half of the season, his side avoided relegation.[14]

On 9 October 2019, after just two league wins from 11 matches in the new campaign, Gomes left.[15]

MarítimoEdit

On 14 November 2019, Gomes was named manager of C.S. Marítimo.[16] In his only season in charge, he led the team to the 11th position in the Portuguese top tier.[17]

AlmeríaEdit

On 27 July 2020, Gomes took over for fellow Portuguese Mário Silva at the helm of Spanish Segunda División side UD Almería, shortly before the promotion play-offs began.[18] They were eliminated 3–1 on aggregate by Girona FC.[19]
