Bento has not worked since being sacked as Portugal’s manager following their elimination in the group phase of the 2014 World Cup.

A former defensive midfielder who was capped 35 times for Portugal, Bento’s only experience as a manager at club level was with Sporting Lisbon from 2005 to 2009.

Cruzeiro are four-time winners of Brazil’s Serie A championship, the country’s top football division. The Belo Horizonte-based club finished eighth in the 20-team standings last season. Endit
