Luis Boa Morte, the former Fulham standout and seasoned Portuguese footballer, is poised to take a significant step in his coaching career as he assumes the role of head coach for the Guinea-Bissau national team. This appointment marks Boa Morte's debut in the international coaching arena. His previous association with Fulham was rekindled in 2021 when he joined the coaching staff under Marco Silva, with whom he had previously collaborated at Sporting Lisbon and Everton. Boa Morte's enduring legacy at Fulham, where he played over 150 games from 2001 to 2007, is fondly remembered by the club and its supporters.


Fulham FC has expressed gratitude towards Boa Morte for his invaluable contributions and dedication, especially highlighting his efforts since rejoining the club's coaching team. The club wished him well in his future endeavors, coinciding with his departure after the season's final match against Luton Town. Boa Morte's transition to international football coaching with Guinea-Bissau, ranked 118th in the world, represents a new and challenging chapter in his career.


Guinea-Bissau's national team, known as the African Wild Dogs, has yet to leave a significant mark in international football, with no World Cup appearances and limited success in the Africa Cup of Nations. Boa Morte's managerial experience, primarily with Portuguese club Sintrense, coupled with his rich playing career that includes a Premier League title with Arsenal and 28 international caps for Portugal, sets the stage for an exciting tenure with Guinea-Bissau. His wealth of experience in both playing and coaching is expected to invigorate the national team as they aim for greater achievements on the international stage.
