Roberto Martinez (49), former Belgian coach, is likely to take over as Portuguese coach.
The British public media BBC, which boasts public confidence, reported on the 8th that “former Belgian coach Martinez is on the verge of becoming Portugal’s new coach.”
And that’s not all. British media The Athletic 메이저사이트 UK said on the 7th, “Former Belgian coach Martinez has reached a verbal agreement with the Portuguese Football Federation to become the new coach of the Portuguese national team. The process will be finalized by next weekend.”
Martinez is a free agent after leaving the Belgian coaching post after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Spanish national coach Martinez has had achievements in the teams he has been in charge of, such as third place in the World Cup in Belgium in 2018, but criticism is also considerable due to Belgium’s group elimination in this World Cup.
Portugal is currently called the golden generation with good players in each position, such as Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias, Bernardo Silva, Rafael Leang, Ruben Neves, and Joao Felix. It seems that there will be a debate about whether it is right to leave this generation to Martinez.
