Portugal Boss, Fernando Santos has stepped down as manager of Portugal.

The 68-year-old leaves after Portugal suffered a shock 1-0 quarter-final defeat to Morocco at the World Cup.

Santos spent eight years in charge of Portugal, guiding the team to victory at Euro 2016, as well as the inaugural Uefa Nations League in 2019.

However his final games were dominated by his decision to drop Cristiano Ronaldo for the knockout matches at Qatar 2022.

Santos chose to drop the 37-year-old before the last-16 meeting with Switzerland, following Ronaldo’s negative reaction to being substituted during the final group game against South Korea.
