Paulo Fonseca was seen in Lille

Portuguese coach Paulo Fonseca has been spotted in the north of France and is expected to join LOSC soon.

Paulo Fonseca at LOSC, it is imminent. Announced close to joining the French club for several weeks, the Portuguese coach was spotted at the local airport in Lesquin on Tuesday morning. The former AS Roma technician, without a club since leaving the Italian capital just a year ago, will therefore very likely take over the reins of the Mastiffs, a few days after the official announcement of the breach of contract. the former coach Jocelyn Gourvennec.

Jorge Maciel to accompany Paulo Fonseca?

After Shakhtar between 2016 and 2019, and AS Roma between 2019 and 2021, Paulo Fonseca should thus discover his third experience abroad. And if he will, moreover, establish himself as the very first Portuguese coach to practice at LOSC, he should not be completely out of place. Also seen at Lesquin airport on Tuesday morning, the Portuguese Jorge Maciel will undoubtedly find the technical staff of Lille to support Paulo Fonseca in his duties. On the other hand, the historic assistant to the Portuguese coach, Nuno Campos, should not follow his faithful sidekick in his French adventure. Recently passed by Santa Clara then by Tondela, the latter has now taken off and started a career as head coach.
