Succeeded in clearing doubt
Ruben had an incredible playing career at Benfica. He won ten major titles, including three Primeira Liga Championships and was part of two FIFA World Cups representing Portugal.
After retiring from the playing career, he started his coaching career with the third division team Casa Pia but soon departed following a year suspension for giving match instructions.
He later agreed to become the U-23 head coach at Benfica but changed his mind and joined Braga's reserve. Three months later, he was on the first team and later led the team to win the Domestic League Cup.
He only had two months of top-flight experience but was paid the third-highest transfer fee by Sporting CP, which was indeed a risk.
He had to go through the controversy after the national coaches complained of having not been qualified for the head coach positions and demanded his suspension.
Talking in favor of Ruben, Sporting stated that there was no legal basis for his suspension.
Ruben was able to clear the doubts by proving himself, bringing the team back to its form, and leading them to win a major title.
His parent's divorce did not affect his career
Ruben was born to his parents, father Virgilio Amorim, and mother, Anabela Amorim. His father owned a key shop while his mother worked as an accountant.
Ruben was a year and a half when his parents decided to part ways.
But having gone through his parent's divorce at such an early age did not affect him and his career as he got enough support from both his parents that did not allow him to feel abandoned.
According to him, his mother worked hard to raise him and his brother. He paid off his mother opening the beauty salon under the name "Bella Looks & Body", which was a dream of his mother.
