The Brazilian Football Confederation has not taken long to find a new coach . Even when fired Mano Menezes said they were in no hurry and would wait even until January, the end has not been well and has not gone very far to find coach.
And is that however much the Brazilians he liked the option of Pep Guardiola, was virtually impossible not to see a Brazilian coach leading the canarinha. So, the new coach is an old friend, Luiz Felipe Scolari, a man of strong temperament, heavy-handed, and he already has a World Cup under his arm.
It was in 2002 when Brazil was proclaimed world champion for the fifth time, his last World Cup so far, and that tournament was Felipao on the bench. After directing to Brazil also was coach of Portugal, where stuck a good role in the 2006 World Cup, reaching the semi-finals, but then failed in the Euro 2008.
Alongside Felipao, the CBF has decided that the new sporting director Brazilian football is another ex-coach with a world behind: Carlos Alberto Parreira. If Scolari was the fifth coach in World Brazil coach Parreira was the fourth wound, at the 1994 World Cup in the United States.
So Brazil uses a tandem quite recurrent, but too well prepared and able to withstand the pressure of 190 million countrymen who are clear that Brazil, in just less than two years, must win the World Cup at home, and so forget the Macaranazo 1950. And to begin with, there is the Confederations Cup in a few months as first test.
