Ney Franco da Silveira Júnior, better known as Ney Franco is a Brazilian football manager, who was born July 22, 1966 in Ipatinga, MG. On July 11, 2008, he was hired by Botafogo to assume their vacancy as manager.[1] On August 10, 2009 Franco was fired as coach of Botafogo because of bad results. One day later he was hired as coach of Coritiba Foot Ball Club as a replacement for René Simões.

On September 23, 2010, Franco was appointed as coach of Brazil U20 team.[2] His main goal was to classify Brazil to the 2012 Summer Olympics, in which he achieved.

On July 5, 2012, after dismiss of Émerson Leão, São Paulo FC confirmed Franco as them new coach for the rest of season. He was liberated by CBF to sign with São Paulo FC[3]

Exactly one year after his signing, Franco was dismissed by directors of club. The former manager of Tricolor let Brazilian side winning 59% of points disputed by São Paulo. For game against rival Santos FC, on July 7, Milton Cruz will coach the players.[4] According Adalberto Baptista, director of club, 2012 "was a very competent year. [The club] had a good campaign, won Copa Sudamericana. [Franco] has shown competency, but unfortunately we know in football results carry from heaven to hell. For this, we have decided to dismiss him."[5]

Franco, for his way, has shown a little disappointment with Paulo Henrique Ganso, that is playing a bad football for club, and believes that his dismissed was caused because of the elimination of São Paulo in Libertadores, against Atlético-MG, another Brazilian side.[6]

In 2013 Ney Franco coached Vitória finishing the Brazilian league Campeonato Brasileiro Série Ain 5th, almost taking the club to Copa Libertadores. He still remains with Vitória in 2014. Leaving the red-black Bahia in May 2014 and that same year hit his return to the command of Flamengo.
