Portuguese coach Fernando Santos will be the new head coach of the Polish national football team, the Polish Football Association (PZPN) reported on Monday evening.
Santos will replace the former coach, Czeslaw Michniewicz, whose contract with the national squad expired last year. His official introduction will take place on Tuesday at 1 pm at Warsaw’s National Stadium.
In earlier years, Santos used to train the Greek and Portuguese national teams and several football clubs in both countries.
Santos’s debut with the Poles is scheduled for March 24 in an away European Cup qualifier against the Czech Republic.
Cezary Kulesza: “Above all, we wanted a coach who already had the experience of leading a national team.”
During the ongoing conference, the president of the Polish Football Association stressed that Poland could afford to choose the best coach – Fernando Santos. As of today, the coach himself will move to Warsaw and lead the Polish team.
