Calisto retired from professional football in June 1978 at only 24, after one season with A.D. Fafe in the second division.


Calisto begun coaching at the age of only 26, leading Boavista F.C. to the fourth position in 1980–81's top flight, recording nine wins, four draws and two losses in his 15 games in charge. He spent the following four years between that team and its Porto neighbours S.C. Salgueiros, winning the second division in 1982.

After only a few months in charge of S.C. Braga, Calisto joined fellow league side Varzim S.C. in the 1986 summer, being sacked with two games left in the 1987–88 campaign and replaced with club player Baltemar Brito as the season ended in relegation. He then had short spells with various clubs, his 1994 one with former club Leixões ending in second level relegation (only one win in ten matches).

Calisto joined Rio Ave F.C. in January 1995, leading the Vila do Conde side to the division two championship in his first full season, but was sacked after the 13th round in 1996–97 after failing to record one win in 13 games. He completed the campaign at the helm of F.C. Paços de Ferreira, in one of several spells he had with the club.

In 2011–12, Calisto returned to Paços for his third stint: when he took the reins of the team it ranked in last position, and he eventually left it well outside of the relegation zone, as tenth, leaving at the end of the campaign.


Calisto spent eight seasons at the helm of Đồng Tâm Long An F.C. in Vietnam, leading the club to two V.League 1 titles, and five other top-three finishes. In March 2008, he was hired as head coach of the Vietnamese football team, leading it to its first ASEAN Football Championship title.

Calisto quit his job as national side coach on 2 March 2011. He had been criticized over the poor performance of the team at the 2010 AFF Suzuki Cup, and was appointed at Thai outfit Muangthong United F.C. the following week.

Africa / Return to Portugal

In mid-February 2013, Calisto was appointed at C.R.D. Libolo in Angola. He returned to his country on 30 October of that year, however, replacing fired Costinha at the helm of former team Paços which ranked last in the league with only one win and one draw from eight games.
