Former Port Vale manager Bruno Ribeiro is one of a eclectic list of candidates to be the next St Mirren manager.
The Scottish Championship club lost their manager Jack Ross when he departed to join Sunderland earlier this summer.
The Scottish newspaper The Daily Record says that “a left-field candidate could be Jose Mourinho’s best Buddie Bruno Ribeiro, who has thrown his hat into the ring.”
Ribeiro was in charge of what has widely been regarded as a disastrous spell at Vale Park where an influx of foreign players failed to lift the club. Ribeiro had resigned by the end of the year and the club were relegated under caretaker Michael Brown.
Other contenders for the St Mirren job include former Dutch international Patrick Kluivert and former South African striker Benni McCarthy. Other contenders are believed to include Gary Caldwell and Alan Stubbs
