Jose Mourinho, future coach of the Portugal national team. The Portuguese Federation wants this and knows how to convince Mourinho.

Portugal were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Morocco and again failed in their quest for the World Cup. A failure that should have been fatal for his coach, Fernando Santos.

In office since September 2014, the Portuguese coach’s contract expires in July 2024. But the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) does not intend to extend it.

Toward the termination of Fernando Santos’ contract

According to the Lisbon Sports Daily in PaulaFPF started negotiations with Fernando Santos in order to find an agreement to terminate his contract.

Although Portugal won Euro 2016 and then the League of Nations in 2019, Fernando Santos has often been criticized for his Portuguese style of play being too defensive.

However, in the 2022 World Cup, Fernando Santos produced an attacking side, which led to a 6-1 victory over Switzerland in the round of 16.

But FPF thinks it’s time to turn the page and already has an idea in mind to replace Fernando Santos. And the name given by A. Bola is the name of Jose Mourinho. It was possible to contact Special One, who is currently coaching Roma.

according to Corriere dello SportMourinho is very satisfied with the interest of the FPF even if it is difficult to finish the process (especially on a financial level).

In June 2021, Mourinho also announced in an interview with Sun That he hadn’t seen himself become a manager for several years: “I was already offered to take over in England when I left Chelsea, but I knew it was too early for me. Then Portugal offered me when I was at Real Madrid. It was a crazy offer for a part-time job.” It’s the kind of work I think I’ll enjoy later on.”

Should Mourinho’s progress fail, the federation could raise Rui Jorge, who is currently managing the Portuguese under-21s, to coach.
