Faquirá started his manager career with his last team, at only 28. In 1999 he signed for another club in the Lisbon area, Odivelas F.C. in the regional leagues, achieving two consecutive promotions with the club and being fired from his position five games into the 2002–03 season (one win, four draws).
Subsequently, Faquirá worked with another side in the third division, F.C. Barreirense: after a second place in his first season he led the Setúbal District outfit to the national championship, and promotion. His first coaching experience in level two happened in 2005 with G.D. Estoril Praia, but he found a club submerged in a deep economic crisis, eventually leaving it in December of that year, being one of three managers for the team during that season as it finished in mid-table.
In 2006–07 Faquirá made his Portuguese top division debuts, with another Lisbon side, C.F. Estrela da Amadora, leading the club to the ninth position and being named Revelation Coach of the Year. In his second season with the team, in spite of tremendous economic problems (up to five months delay in salaries), he managed to maintain the squad in its entirety and lead it to another safe finish (13th).
Faquirá joined Vitória Futebol Clube for the 2008–09 season. On 14 January 2009, after a 1–2 home loss against Académica de Coimbra for the season's League Cup – the Setúbal side had also been defeated eight times in 14 games in the league – he was sacked.
On 1 June 2010, after one year out of football, Faquirá replaced Académica-bound Jorge Costa at the helm of top flight team S.C. Olhanense. He eventually led the Algarve club out of the relegation zone, but managed to rank as high as second after seven rounds, only behind eventual champions F.C. Porto.
On 30 December 2011 Faquirá resigned from Olhanense due to poor results, despite ranking 10th in the league. His resignation came one week after the team lost in the season's Portuguese Cup against second division club U.D. Oliveirense.

Famous quotes containing the word career:
“Each of the professions means a prejudice. The necessity for a career forces every one to take sides. We live in the age of the overworked, and the under-educated; the age in which people are so industrious that they become absolutely stupid.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
