Chelsea assistant coach Anthony Barry has taken up a dual role with the Portugal men’s national team.

The 36-year-old has been at Chelsea since 2020, assistant first to Frank Lampard, then Thomas Tuchel, and now Graham Potter.

In that time he has held other roles with the Ireland and Belgium national teams. For the latter, which concluded after the World Cup in Qatar, he assisted Roberto Martinez, and he will link up with the former Everton boss once again after he was announced as Portugal’s new manager in January.

Also joining Martinez’s backroom staff is Ricardo Carvalho, the legendary former Chelsea defender and a Euro 2016 winner with his native Portugal.

Barry will remain in his existing position at Chelsea and link up with the Portugal squad in the international windows, the first of which is later this month when they play Liechtenstein and Luxembourg in Euro 2024 qualifiers.
