Playing career

During his career, Portugal played for Burgos CF, CD Mirandés, Real Madrid, Cádiz CF, Rayo Vallecano, CD Castellón, Real Burgos, Real Valladolid and Córdoba CF.

With the La Liga powerhouse, he remained four years (one loaned at Cádiz), winning the double in his first year, but only amassing 27 first division appearances combined during his spell.

Coaching career

Portugal started managing in the mid-90's, returning to Real Madrid to be in charge of its C and B sides. In 1999, he started in the second division with CD Toledo, but was fired after only a couple of months.

After some years out of football, Portugal coached former club Córdoba, also in level two, returning to Real Madrid Castilla in 2005–06, following the December promotion to the first team of Juan Ramón López Caro. On 5 July 2006, he succeeded López Caro once again, now at Racing de Santander, helping the Cantabrians to a final 10th place in the top flight.

Portugal served as technical director of Real Madrid subsequently. In November 2008, he was set to take over at the club as coach, following the sacking of Bernd Schuster, but club president Ramón Calderón preferred Juande Ramos instead.

On 19 November 2009, Portugal returned to Racing on a two-year deal, following the dismissal of Juan Carlos Mandiá, as the side only collected one point in five home matches. In early February 2011, even though the club was placed above the relegation zone in the top division, he was sacked by the team's new owner, Indian Ahsan Ali Syed.[1]
