40 year old Nuno Manta Santos has spent his entire career in Feirense, having started in the 2010/11 season.

In 2016/17, he became deputy to José Mota until a defeat, curiously by Marítimo (2-0), which then dictated the departure of Mota and the promotion of Nuno as the main coach. During his first season he led Feirense to finish the league in eighth place, with 48 points.

The position of Nuno Manta Santos at Feirense came to an end on the 20th day of the last season, 2018/19, after the team lost to Boavista 2-0.
