A former Madrid player and European champion for Roberto Martínez

Just as he had Thierry Henry as an assistant in Belgium, Roberto Martínez wanted a former award-winning and national player when he took charge of the Portuguese team. The chosen one was Ricardo Carvalho, a center back who won the Champions League with Porto and the Euro Cup with Portugal. In addition to this, he played at the highest continental level for Chelsea and Real Madrid. In all the places he went he left a good memory.

He fit the profile that Roberto Martínez was looking for and he is not disappointing. His work is considered fundamental to the possible Portuguese success. He has a good relationship with some of the current players with whom he met, such as Pepe and Cristiano Ronaldo. It is also a reference for young people.

He speaks Spanish and serves as a link in Portuguese for the coach and the players, although Roberto Martínez already masters the language. Furthermore, as a defender that he was, he is a true expert in teaching specific things about that area to the new defenders who come, two of them with infinite potential: Antonio Silva and Gonçalo Inácio. With Carvalho by his side, everything is easier for the coach and for the Portuguese players.
