Luiz Antonio Venker de Menezes or simply Mano Menezes (born June 11, 1962, in Passo do Sobrado, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil) is the current coach of the national football team of his native Brazil.

His nickname comes from early childhood, when his sister called him "Mano", that's a popular slang term meaning "brother" in Portuguese.


He began his career in football as a defender for Guarani de Venâncio Aires in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He gave up playing to become a physical education professional, beginning in 1986 in SESI, Rio Grande do Sul, before going on to Guarani de Venâncio Aires, Juventude and Internacional (as well as a spell in 1997 with Paulo Autuori at Cruzeiro).

He was the coach of Grêmio from 2005 through 2007, a remarkably long time for a coach in Brazilian football. He led them to promotion in 2005 and followed that up with a third place finish in the 2006 Brasileiro. In 2007, he led Grêmio to the final of the Copa Libertadores. At the end of the 2007 season, he took over as coach of Corinthians and started the 2008 season with a 3-0 win over Guarani. Menezes led Corinthians to the 2008 Campeonato Brasileiro Série B title with 25 wins, 10 draws and three losses, finishing with 85 points.
