The Portuguese Ambassador criticizes Fernando Santos and the coach's son responds

In a text posted on social media, Portugal’s Ambassador to Japan Vitor Sereno criticized Fernando Santos following Portugal’s departure for the 2022 World Cup. Luis Santos, son of the coach, responded to the comment.

Portuguese Ambassador to Japan Vitor Sereno criticized Fernando Santos, the Portuguese coach, and received a response from Luis Santos, the son of the 68-year-old coach. In a post made on the social network LinkedIn, the representative of Portugal in the Japanese country felt that the “Engineer” did not know how to leave the corner teams in time.

“The coach who didn’t know how to come out on top when he had everything to do. As European champion and winner of the First League of Nations, he will forever go down in history. I myself have voted and lobbied roundabouts across the country to have his name., will go to the bottom, a hostage of his tactical inability, fear, inconsistency, but above all his smallness. FPF’s insistence on Fernando Santos is unhealthy and vice versa. Clinging to a position and not immediately making an accessible position (just look at Luis Enrique, Tita or Roberto Martinez) is symptomatic. The ability to collapse is our worst characteristic. To date, the only one I have seen, trying to change the paradigm of this state of constant depression, states of euphoria alternating with states of euphoria, was Cristiano Ronaldo, the best ambassador of Portugal (I know them all: he has no equal) and the only one who has never been ashamed to assume that we Portuguese can reach the top of the world when we want Cristiano to be much more than just a Portuguese gal and, deep down, it pisses us off. It’s easier to equate yourself with mediocrity than perfection – many years ago I had a senior colleague who told me not to work so hard because it makes others do the same or better, ”he said.

Luis Santos, son of Fernando Santos, replied: “Mr. Ambassador is entitled to his opinion. But publicly and for no reason to write about the “insignificance” of someone who gave so much to his homeland may be unworthy of his position. understand what you thought was the added value of the paragraph in question (worthy of CMTV). And I also don’t understand to what extent your comment differs from what you are criticizing: “the ability to repress ourselves is our greatest characteristic” … there is a lot of work to be done in the relations between Portugal and Japan. We count on you to do it with the same dedication and competence as our national team, which for the third time in their career took us to the quarter-finals of the World Cup. history and stood up. In particular, there is as much commitment and competence as there is to the “small” (his words) selector of the only two trophies in the nation’s football history. Lack of gratitude.”
