Paulo Sousa in December he was disgraced with the Polish national team. The Portuguese resigned from leading the White-Reds a few months before the play-offs for the promotion to the world championship in Qatar. He picked up an offer from Flamengo Rio de Janeiro but was sacked by the Brazilian club in early June.

Since then, Sousa has been unemployed. This, however, can change quickly – Portuguese is combined with working for Juventus. Although under the leadership of the 51-time representative of Portugal, the White-Reds did not perform well, Zbigniew Boniek believes that Sousa did not do the worst at all.
Sousa gave the team a “good kick”
According to Bonek, Sous was an excellent coach. “He had the task and he did it. We were supposed to finish first or second in the World Cup qualifiers. That was what happened. He was unlucky because he didn’t win any important match. But I don’t remember his disastrous match. I think he gave this team a good kick. ” – stated the former president of the Polish Football Association in the program “Let them talk”.
Boniek believes that if he was still at the head of the Polish Football Association, Sousa would not have left. According to the bronze medalist of the World Cup in 1982, the Portuguese could feel lonely after his departure. “He no longer had the interlocutor he had in me. He was under stress, he had the opportunity to go to another place and he made a mistake. (…) Many things happened that made what happened to happen” – added Boniek.
Fans will point out that Sousie has lost Euro 2020, during which we have not even left the group – The Biało-Czerwoni managed to score only a point, drawing 1-1 with Spain. Under the leadership of the Portuguese, we got to the play-offs for promotion to the world championship in Qatar, which we eventually won.
His eyesight deteriorated day by day. First in one eye. Activities in the hall, a ball hit in the face and Michał Globisz was in the hospital. Later, visibility in the other eye faded. Nevertheless, the deserved youth coach and educator can still be found in the stands of the stadium in Gdynia – he comes to matches and his friends tell him what is happening on the pitch. In “X-ray”, the guardian of the gold medalists of the European Championships from years ago talks about learning a new life and setting the head at such an angle that the number of an oncoming trolleybus can be seen at the stop.
