Domingos José Paciência Oliveira, known as simply Domingos as a player (Portuguese pronunciation: ; born 2 January 1969), is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a striker, and the current manager of Vitória de Setúbal.

He achieved success with both Porto and the Portuguese national team, appearing in more than 350 official games with the former over the course of 12 seasons (nearly 150 goals) and representing the latter at Euro 1996.

After completing his accreditation in 2005, Domingos resumed his career as a manager, notably helping Braga reach the 2011 Europa League final.

Playing career

A F.C. Porto trainee since he was 13,[1] discovered at local Atlético de Leça, Domingos was born in Leça da Palmeira, Matosinhos, and proved to be a terrific goalscorer despite being physically weak. Tomislav Ivić eventually decided he should be the replacement for an ageing Fernando Gomes, and made his debuts with the first team at age 19, being crowned top scorer in the Portuguese league in the 1995–96 season; previously, in 1990–91, he was involved in a last-matchday battle for the Bola de Prata award with S.L. Benfica's Rui Águas, with Águas' team having won the championship the game before: Domingos played first, putting four past Vitória de Guimarães in a 5–0 home win, going from 20 to 24 goals. Águas appeared hours later against S.C. Beira-Mar, and bagged two second-half goals in an eventual 3–0 triumph, finishing with 25.

In 1997–98 Domingos moved to the Canary Islands' CD Tenerife, one season after Porto signed prolific striker Mário Jardel. There, he teamed up with Roy Makaay, but never fully adapted to La Liga, netting only once in his final season – which ended in relegation – in a 1–2 home loss against Deportivo Alavés.

Domingos eventually returned to Porto two years later, who outbid Sporting Clube de Portugal at the eleventh hour. While cherished by the crowd, he didn't impose himself as in the past, and retired at the end of the 2000–01. He won seven league titles, six supercups and five cups.

For Portugal Domingos scored nine goals in 34 appearances, including one against Croatia at UEFA Euro 1996 as the national team reached the quarterfinals.

International goals

Manager career

Leiria and Académica

After his retirement Domingos was assigned to coach Porto's youth teams, and later the reserves. After completing his level three managing course, he left Porto and was hired as manager of first-divisioner União de Leiria for 2006–07; he also opened a football school in Matosinhos with former Porto teammate Rui Barros.

Despite a good work overall, leading the team to a seventh-place finish, Domingos left the club before the end of the season, after having fallen out with club president and player Adriano Rossato.[2]

The following season Domingos took the reins of another top level side, Académica de Coimbra, after Manuel Machado resigned. In his first two years in charge of the Students he led the side to two consecutive league wins at Benfica (3–0, 1–0) and, in his second season, he coached it to a final seventh position, the best in 24 years.


In June 2009 Paciência resigned, after receiving an offer from Minho club to an historical campaign, leading the league for most of the season and eventually securing the second position – a best ever, behind Benfica – and subsequent UEFA Champions League qualification; the team became only the fifth in the country to reach the competition's group stage, after ousting Celtic (4–2 on aggregate) and Sevilla FC (5–3) in the qualifying rounds.

After a bad start to both the domestic and the Champions League campaigns, Braga slowly recovered their form, finishing in fourth position in the former and in third in the latter, with the subsequent Europa League qualification, where Domingos led the team to the final, after disposing of Lech Poznań, Liverpool, FC Dynamo Kyiv and Benfica; as he had announced in May 2011, he left his post after the game against Porto.[3]


On 23 May 2011, Domingos was named José Couceiro's successor at Sporting Clube de Portugal.[4] His move to Lisbon was largely expected following the election of Luís Godinho Lopes as club president.[5]

In his first season, Domingos qualified the Lions to their first Portuguese Cup final in four years. On 13 February 2012, however, as the team ranked fourth in the league, 16 points behind leaders Benfica, he was fired, following a 0–2 away loss against C.S. Marítimo.[6][7]


On 30 December 2012 Paciência signed a contract with Spanish top-divisioner Deportivo de La Coruña, as the Galician team struggled at the bottom of the table.[8] In his first game in charge the club beat Málaga CF 1–0 at home, marking its first win in over two months.[9]

Paciência resigned at Depor on 10 February 2013, after not being able to help the side improve from the 20th and last position in the charts.[10]
