José Leonardo Nunes Alves Sousa Jardim (Portuguese pronunciation: [liuˈnaɾdu ʒɐɾˈdĩ]; born 1 August 1974) is a Portuguese football manager currently in charge of French club AS Monaco FC.

Football career

Born in Barcelona, Anzoátegui, Venezuela, to Portuguese parents who had settled in the country, Jardim returned to Portugal at a very young age, relocating to the island of Madeira. In 2001, aged only 27, he started his manager career, acting as assistant to local A.D. Camacha for two years.

Subsequently, Jardim was promoted to head coach at the third division side, moving to G.D. Chaves in the same category midway through the 2007–08 campaign and leading the northerners to promotion to the second level in his only full season.

In the 2009 summer, he was appointed at S.C. Beira-Mar, achieving another promotion, this time to the Primeira Liga. Jardim stepped down midway through the following season due to a string of bad results, even though the Aveiro team finally managed to retain their division status.[1]

In May 2011, Jardim replaced Sporting Clube de Portugal-bound Domingos Paciência at the helm of S.C. Braga.[2] He led the Minho club to the third position in his first and only season – posting a record of 15 consecutive league wins in the process –[3]but left after a run-in with the president.[4]

On 5 June 2012, Jardim agreed to join Olympiacos F.C. from the Superleague Greece on a two-year contract, replacing Ernesto Valverde.[5][6] He was controversially relieved of his duties on 19 January of the following year, even though the team led the league by ten points.[7]

Jardim returned to the country of his parents in the 2013 summer, penning a two-year deal with Sporting.[8] Leading a team full of youngsters developed at the club's youth system,[9][10] he coached the Lisbon giants to the second position in his debut campaign,[11] with 25 points and 18 goals more than the previous season.

On 10 June 2014, Jardim was appointed at AS Monaco FC for two seasons plus the option for another.[12] He led the team to the third place in Ligue 1 in his first year, repeating the feat in 2015–16.
