Former Vipers Sports Club head coach George Miguel Duarte Dacosta has been appointed at Libyan giants Al Ittihad.
The former FC Porto player joined the four-time Uganda Premier League side Vipers in 2017 and helped the team finish 3rd in his maiden season.
In 2017/2018 season, Dacosta inspired Vipers SC to their third title and helped the club advance to the Stanbic Uganda Cup final the same season before loosing to eventual winners KCCA FC (1-0) in Bukedea district.
He was also in charge of Vipers SC during the 2018 CECAFA Kagame Cup where they lost to Kenya Premier League defending champions giants Gor Mahia on the quarter final stage.
After being relived of his duties at the Venoms, he was appointed at Botswana Premier League Club Jwaneng Galaxy before his sacking in February 2020 following a string of poor results.
At his new club, Al Ittihad, the Portuguese international replaces Belgian coach Ivan Minnaert who was relieved of his duties last year in September.
Dacosta becomes the second Portuguese tactician to manage Al Ittihad after Jose Vidigal who handled the side in 2012/13 season.
