Portugal Searches for New Coach as Former Coach, Fernando Santos, Steps Down

A search for a new national team coach has started following the resignation of Fernando Santos as manager after Portugal’s World Cup loss.

Santos oversaw Portugal for eight years, winning the 2016 Euro Championship and the 2019 Uefa Nations League with the squad.

Portugal started the World Cup on a bright note, winning against Ghana and going on to seal a big 6-1 win against Switzerland in the round of 16.

But they were stunned in the last eight as Morocco became the first African nation to reach the World Cup semi-finals.

The Portuguese Football Association (FPF) said: “The FPF thanks Fernando Santos and his technical team for the services provided over eight unique years and believes that this thanks is also made on behalf of the Portuguese people.

“The FPF Board will now start the process of choosing the next national coach.”
