Report – Newcastle Have Spoken To Conceicao

The Daily Mail are now reporting that Newcastle United have contacted Porto manager Sergio Conceicao about his interest in the vacant Newcastle manager position.

Earlier there was a very brief report in Sky Sports that Sergio Conceicao was interested in the position.

The Daily Mail confirm that piece of information but also add the following:

Sportsmail understands Conceicao has been spoken to by officials from the St James’s Park club and he would open to making the move from Portugal.

If true this would be excellent news. We would love for a young manager to take the helm at Newcastle even if some think that would pose a greater risk.

Sergio Conceicao– should I succeed Rafa at Newcastle?

Sergio Conceicao has done excellently in his progression as a manager and has turned Porto around after financial difficulties and poor finishes.

Football BH’s Daniel Lusted did this excellent write up of Conceicao’s unique tactical style. It is superb and in depth. One thing that we gather from reading it is we will definitely need some new fullbacks in he comes in, but we already needed that.

There is also this video from Tifo Football from the 2017/18 season prior to Porto winning the Portuguese Super Liga for the first time in 5 years which further details his tactical style.
