What’s next after this ad

After eight years under the orders of Fernando Santos, Portugal entrusted their destiny to the Spaniard Roberto Martinez. A little over twenty years after the start of the reign of Luiz Felipe Scolari, the Seleção das Quinas has again chosen a foreign coach while the name of a certain José Mourinho was regularly announced. Information confirmed by the coach himself, who explained the reasons that led him to stay in Rome.

Asked about the exchanges he had with Fernando Soares, the president of the Federation, the “Special One” did not dodge the subject. “I have to thank the president of the Portuguese Football Federation, because what he told me made me proud. He told me that I was his only option and that he did everything possible to get me home, which made me very happy. But it didn’t happen. I stayed, I’m good here and I’m giving my best. It is the most important. I always give the best of me in what I undertake.said Mourinho after his team’s victory against Genoa in the Italian Cup on Thursday (1-0).
