KUALA LUMPUR: Portuguese Ulisses Morais has been named as the new manager-cum-coach of Darul Ta'zim.

The 58-year-old replaces Mexican Benjamin Mora who was handling the club since January on a caretaker basis.

Mora will assume his initial role as the coach of Premier League side Johor.

Morais formerly managed Portuguese sides Famalicao, Aves, S. C. Beira-Mar and Academica De Coimbra.

Darul Ta'zim midfielder Nazmi Faiz Mansor was under Morais when he had a six-month stint with Beira-Mar in 2012.
