Carlos Queiroz has given up his job as Sir Alex Ferguson's right-hand man at Manchester United to take charge of the Portuguese national team.

Queiroz has signed a four-year deal and replaces Luiz Felipe Scolari who has taken over at Chelsea.

“Carlos Queiroz is the new national coach,” said a Portugal Football Federation (FPF) statement released by the Lusa news agency.

“The Portuguese coach has a four-year deal and will be presented on Wednesday.”

The 55-year-old Queiroz was in charge of the Portugal Under-20 side which won the world titles in 1989 amd 1991 and was dubbed the “golden generation”, boasting players of the calibre of Luis Figo, Fernando Couto and Paulo Sousa.

He has also coached Sporting Lisbon between 1993 and 1996 as well as Real Madrid (2003-2004), the UAE (1997-1999) and South Africa (2000-2002).
