Portugal’s Fernando Santos was introduced on Tuesday as the new coach of the Polish national team. He replaced Czesław Michniewicz in this position, with whom the Polish Football Association did not decide to extend the expiring contract.
The Portuguese agent took the floor and outlined an amazing scenario
Paulo Barbosa, a Portuguese football agent, assessed the chances of the Polish national team under the new coach. He believes that the Biało-Czerwoni will succeed in the qualifiers for the European Championships in 2024, which will be held in Germany.
– Fernando Santos has a lot of experience. He worked well in Greece and was the best coach of the Portuguese national team. I think he can do a great job with the Polish national team and go far at the World and European Championships – to the quarter-finals or semi-finals – said Paulo Barbosa.
Even before the selection of the new coach of the Polish national team, the agent told the Portuguese media that Santos was a good candidate. He also reminded that the White-Reds were also led by Paulo Sousa.
– Previously, our Portuguese coach Paolo Sousa worked there successfully, but then there were misunderstandings and he left. That is why the Polish team is willing to negotiate with the former coach of Portugal. It is a good acquisition for the Polish national team – said Barbosa for “RB Sport”.
Fernando Santos will debut in his new position in less than two months. Then the Polish national team will play the first match in the qualifiers for the European Championship 2024. Our players will play in Prague against the Czech Republic on March 24.
