Portugal Coach Rui Jorge has expressed his dissatisfaction with Fabio Carvalho handling of his withdrawal from the competition this month.

Carvalho was one of the ten Liverpool players selected this month for international service outside the World Cup. But it was later discovered that he had withdrawn.

Before their friendly against the Czech Republic and Japan for the U21 age group, the Portuguese Football Federation explicitly said that the news had been announced via “certain SMS messages.”

Given that Portuguese-born Carvalho had just recently made his debut at that level, the news shocked and sparked rumours that he would return to England.

In any case, Jorge was “disappointed” in how the 20-year-old addressed his leaving, as he told reporters on Thursday.

Portugal U-21 coach disappointed with Fabio Carvalho

Rui told Mais Futebol about his disappointment with the youngster. He texted the coach to tell him about his withdrawal from the U-21s. The coach got upset by the fact that Fabio thought U-21s weren’t going to bring him any benefit. Moreover, he thought sending a text for it made it worse.

The coach expected him to at least call and talk about it and make it clear. As he would have better conveyed his message to him.

The coach thought, after his reply, Fabio would call and talk about it, but that also he didn’t do.

Carvalho is under no duty to represent Portugal or accept a call-up. But the fact that he has stirred some questions is undoubtedly not good.

He is still a young athlete. So, the claim that serving on the U21 team “no longer brought him any value” is troubling.

However, Jorge did praise Carvalho’s approach when he was a member of his Portugal team. He had previously played four times during two breaks in March and June.

The coach said at the end:

“Fabio, it should be noted that he always behaved exemplary at all levels while he was with us.

What he brought to our game, too, his relationship with our staff was impeccable.

On our part towards him, the same thing – he was treated with affection and respect that we all deserve, and everything went very well.”
