Alcoutim manager named ‘Women’s Futsal Coach of the Year’

Algarve manager Luís Conceição has been named ‘Women’s Futsal Coach of the Year’ at the Quinas de Ouro gala held in Lisbon on Sunday, September 2.

Conceição is a native of Martim Longo (Alcoutim) and led the national futsal team to a gold medal at the Youth Olympic Games in 2018 in Argentina and to a second-place finish at the 2019 Euro.

He was welcomed a few days after the gala at Alcoutim town hall and was praised by the council, which recognises “not only his effort as a national team coach but also how he represents Alcoutim throughout the world”.

Apart from being a busy manager, Conceição is also a councillor in Alcoutim.
