To remove Abel from PAOK now, with whom he had a relationship until June 2022, the São Paulo club, which initially considered the value of the deal to be high, made a financial effort to reduce the amount of the severance fine.
Before defining the new favorite to replace the dismissed Vanderlei Luxemburgo, the Alviverdes leaders even analyzed two other Portuguese: Bruno Lage, ex-Benfica and currently unemployed, and Rui Vitória, from Al Nassr, from Saudi Arabia.
At 41, Abel Ferreira started his career as a coach at Sporting base. Then, he gained prominence in the main team of Braga and then went to Greece, having, at the beginning of the current season, eliminated Benfica from Jorge Jesus in the qualifying phase to the Champions League.

As a player, Abel Ferreira served as a right-back between 1997 and 2011, always in Portugal. It was revealed by Penafiel and later represented Vitória de Guimarães, Braga and Sporting.
