Leonardo "Léo" Porto Siqueira (born 3 April 1986) is a Brazilian football manager. He is the current assistant manager of Fortaleza.

Career

Born in Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul, Porto was a futsal player before retiring and starting a physical education degree in São Paulo. He started his career at Juventus-SP's under-15 squad before joining Hélio dos Anjos' assistant at Fortaleza in 2013, as an analyst and assistant.[1]

After working with Hélio dos Anjos at Atlético Goianiense, Porto joined Dorival Júnior's staff at Santos in November 2015, as an analyst.[2] He subsequently worked in the same role with Dorival at São Paulo, Flamengo and Athletico Paranaense.[3]

On 23 December 2020, Porto returned to Fortaleza as a permanent assistant manager of the club.[4] In April 2021, after the dismissal of Enderson Moreira, he was named interim manager.[5]

Porto's first match in charge of the Leão occurred on 1 May 2021, a 4–1 Campeonato Cearense home success over Caucaia.[6] He returned to his previous role three days later, after the appointment of Juan Pablo Vojvoda.
