After the information, first-hand, on the pages of A BOLA, reporting the finish of the cycle of Fernando Santos as nationwide coach, as is pure, names begin to seem for the place that shall be vacant, since the starting of 2023, by the coach who led the nationwide staff for the final eight years.

José Mourinho, Paulo Sousa, Leonardo Jardim or Rui Jorge are a few of the names, maybe, which might be already talked about extra behind the scenes of the Portuguese Football Federation, nevertheless it ought to at all times be famous that the termination of the contract with Fernando Santos stays. removed from concluding and foreseeing whether or not it’s, however, advanced, regardless of the attainable convergence of factors of view that there could also be between the two events.

As we reported, it’s sure that Fernando Santos will stop to be the coach of Portugal, and can not information the staff in engagements, in March subsequent 12 months, at the begin of the qualification part for the subsequent European Cup The complexity of breaking the settlement that binds the events till 2024 means, nevertheless, that an settlement should be reached with out haste. In addition, it’s a movement of order for Fernando Santos and for the president of the federation, Fernando Gomes, is aware of A BOLA, that the dismissal be achieved by mutual absolute and unequivocal settlement.

For this motive, we should repeat, the complexity that extinction requires advises that the subject of alternative can be managed with none haste and with the utmost consideration and, after all, indispensable rigor.

Among the names being talked about, logically there’s that of José Mourinho, the most prestigious of the Portuguese coaches (and one in every of the most globally), he who at all times appears to seem on these events as a type of utopia or, if I desire , an outdated dream to see as (inevitable, sooner or later?) coach of Portugal.

The fact is that though José Mourinho is underneath contract with Roma till the summer time of 2024, and that, right now, the chance of accepting a challenge of those traits appears actually much less, the chance of the “Move” identify enters the equation. in the part of change that can carry a new face to the command of the Selection from 2023.

If the identify of José Mourinho will virtually at all times be seen as consensual for lots of the protagonists near the Selection, the identical will be stated, it appears to us, of the identify of Paulo Sousa, seen, we’re instructed, “as conciliatory and with a superb political picture for in cost”.

It will not be obscure and conclude that, at this level, there shall be a number of names and a number of profile options to be thought of by the major individual accountable for the skilled soccer space of ​​the federation, as, in truth, it at all times occurs with most of the alternative processes of different coaches away after the outcomes (unhealthy or much less good) in the World Cup in Qatar.

Let the Brazilian federation (CBF) say so, for instance, in entrance of a number of names, similar to these of the Portuguese Abel Ferreira or Jorge Jesús, in the evaluation and weighting achieved on the different facet of the Atlantic in the group of coaches with probabilities of succeeding the Brazilian Tite accountable for the Canarinha nationwide staff.
