Former Belgium head coach, Roberto Martinez has reached a verbal agreement with Portugal.
Martinez’s appointment comes just over a month after he left his role with Belgium after the 2022 World Cup.
The Spaniard insisted his departure was planned regardless of how the Red Devils performed in Qatar.
“I don’t resign. It’s the end of my contract… It has been six years. I arrived with the clear idea of qualifying for the  World Cup. Then we became so engaged with the project and won the bronze medal. I’m so proud of these players,” he said.
Martinez reportedly had offers from clubs and other countries after leaving Belgium.
However, The Athletic reports he has since reached an agreement with Portugal, who parted ways with Fernando Santos after the World Cup.
Santos famously benched Cristiano Ronaldo for their last two fixtures at the tournament.
