Fernando Santos quit as coach of Portugal on Thursday following the team's shock World Cup quarterfinal loss to Morocco with colourful and controversial Jose Mourinho named as a leading candidate to take over, reports AFP. The Portuguese football federation (FPF) said in a statement that an agreement was reached with the 68-year-old Santos "to end the journey of great success that began in September 2014". The FPF added that it "will now launch the process to choose the next national coach". Appointed coach of Portugal in September 2014, Santos won the country's first major title at Euro 2016 and followed it up with the 2019 Nations League.
