Fernando Santos new national coach in Poland

The big chair shift after the World Cup has led to another result: Fernando Santos is moving from the Portugal bench to Poland.

Fernando Santos is the new national coach of Poland. The association officially announced this on Tuesday and presented the 68-year-old as the successor to Czeslaw Michniewicz.

Michniewicz’s contract, which was said to have problems with star player Robert Lewandowski, was not extended at the end of 2022.

Santos was sacked after the World Cup, where Portugal lost to Morocco in the quarter-finals.

Poland will face the Czech Republic, Albania, Moldova and the Faroe Islands in the European Championship qualifiers from March.

Santos had coached Portugal for more than eight years. During his tenure, winning the 2016 European Championship also saw the country’s greatest international success.
