Queiroz has admitted that it was a hard decision to leave United and thanked the club for allowing his release to become coach of his home nation.

"It is with a very heavy heart that I leave the greatest football club in the world after five fantastic years," he said.

"This has been a special period in my life both personally and professionally.

"I have been so lucky to have had the opportunity to work in first-class facilities with a staff team who are at the top of their profession."
