Jose Mourinho is no longer deemed the favorite to become Fernando Santos’ successor as Portugal’s manager.

The latest news in England claim that former Belgium boss Roberto Martinez is now leading the race for the managerial vacancy.

According to The Telegraph, Martinez is expected to meet with the Portuguese federation and sign a long-term deal in the coming months.

Roma coach Jose Mourinho declined Portugal’s advances earlier in December, wanting to prioritize his work with the Giallorossi at least for the remainder of his contract.
