Oporto Sports is delighted to announce a working partnership with former Barnsley and Leeds United manager Paul Heckingbottom.

Base Soccer will continue to represent Paul as his agents, whilst Oporto will provide Heckingbottom with publicity services, seeking suitable media opportunities for him, whilst helping to manage his professional profile.

Heckingbottom won the League 1 play-offs and the Football League Trophy during the 2015-16 season with Barnsley, leading them to the Championship, where he established the Tykes, before joining Leeds United last season.

Speaking about the announcement, Oporto director Dean Eldredge said: “Paul is a hugely talented young coach and manager, with a clear philosophy for the way football should be played.

“He is a winner, with an impressive knowledge and passion for the game, and we are very proud to be working with him and hope to help further his reputation through the media and his public profile.”
