Ivo Ricardo Abreu Vieira (born 10 January 1976) is a former Portuguese footballer who played as a defender, and the current manager of C.D. Aves.

Playing career

Vieira was born in Machico, Madeira. His entire ten-year professional career was spent with local C.D. Nacional, which he represented in all three major levels since being promoted to the main squad at the age of 18.

From 2002 to 2004, Vieira competed in the Primeira Liga. His first game in the competition took place on 22 September 2002, as he came on a last-minute substitute in a 2–0 away win against S.C. Beira-Mar; in the latter season, he contributed with 19 appearances to help his team to a best-ever fourth position.

Managerial career

After retiring at the age of only 28, Vieira started working as a coach, first being named assistant manager at Nacional under Casemiro Mior. On 14 March 2011, after a spell with the club's juniors, he was handed the reins of the first team after Predrag Jokanović was fired.[1] However, he himself was replaced by Pedro Caixinha at the end of October.[2]

On 20 January 2013, Vieira was announced as the new manager of C.S. Marítimo B,[3] the reserve team of neighbouring C.S. Marítimo. In early March 2015, after Leonel Pontes' resignation, he was appointed his successor,[4] leading the club to the final of the Taça da Liga the following month later after disposing of FC Porto in the last-four stage.[5]

Vieira was sacked on 16 January 2016, due to poor results. On 27 May, he was appointed at Segunda Liga club C.D. Aves for one year.[6]
