Far from Portugal, Luis Castro does not deny himself the pleasure of closely following the news of the national team. The Portuguese technician from Al Duhail in Qatar has the ambition to lead the Seleção someday. However, he knows it is still far from being a first choice.

Remaining on the bench of the Portuguese selection remains a target in the corner of Luis Castro’s head. But the current coach of Qatari club Al Duhail remains modest in his ambitions. Although he would like to lead a national team one day, he seems to be a bit high on his home country side. A fact that is not lost sight of in statements to Radio Renasinka.

“It is a goal for me to be the national coach and not the national team A, B or C. I would like to represent a country as a national coach. Portugal is like the Formula 1 network. I am not in the front row and I have to accept that,” said Luis Castro, who wants to see Fernando Santos. In his position for so long now, “that’s why I don’t consider it a priority in my career.”

“Now who doesn’t want to be the national coach and represent their country? Everyone does that and I am no exception. But I hope Fernando Santos will stay in the national team for another 10 years and win more titles. He hinted at the place delivered very well.

Luis Castro was at FC Porto from 2006 to 2016. This does not prevent him from returning to coach rival clubs of the Dragon. However, he is not hoping to return to the Portuguese First Division any time soon.

“I would have coached any of the Big Three in Portugal, but a comeback is not in my sights. It wouldn’t be right away because I didn’t get an invite and Portugal is very well served by the coaches. The big companies are very stable, with Braga doing a great job in Europe,” Luis Castro explained.
