Antonio Oliveira is set to take over as coach of Portugal for the second time, replacing Humberto Coelho who resigned after the country's semi-final exit at Euro 2000.
The Portuguese sports newspaper Record reported on Wednesday that Gilberto Madail, president of the Portuguese Football Federation, will officially announce the decision during the next 48 hours.
In his previous spell as national boss, Oliveira guided Portugal to Euro 96, where they were knocked out at the quarter-final stage. He has also won two League championships at Porto.
Madail is expected to announce the decision after speaking with his technical committee. Although there is some resistance within the committee to Oliveira's appointment, it is expected that he will receive majority approval.
Personally I think it's a great decision. Afterall, the man does know what excellence is all about having coached FCP!
