Spanish football coach Roberto Martinez reached a verbal agreement with the Portuguese Football Association for the job of coach.
As reported by Athletic, it is expected that the engagement work will be completed by the end of the week.
Martinez will take charge of Portugal just over a month after stepping down as Belgium’s coach following a disappointing World Cup result in Qatar and elimination in the group stage.
He said at the time that he planned to quit his job regardless of Belgium’s result at the World Cup.
During his coaching career, he led Swansea, Wigan, and Everton, and he took over the Belgium national team in 2016.
The Football Association of Portugal is looking for a coach since Fernando Santos left the national team, after the elimination in the quarter-finals of the World Cup and the defeat by Morocco.
