Scolari claims he is 'unwanted' for 2014 World Cup
Former Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has reiterated his desire to return to international coaching, but claims he is unwanted.
The 63-year-old guided the Seleção to the World Cup final in 2002, where they beat Germany 2-0, and has also coached Portugal and Kuwait.
With the next World Cup taking place in Brazil, Scolari’s native country, it seems the current Palmeiras boss wants to return to the international fold in time for the competition.
Scolari said: "It's a fact that I want to coach a national team in 2014, but nobody wants me.”
Howver, he refused to respond when asked if he could replace current Brazil coach Mano Menezes if the position became vacant.
Jose Maria Marin, president of Brazil's Football Confederation (CBF), declared his support for the current Seleção coach this week.
Menezes was supposedly under pressure following Brazil’s disappointing result in this summer's London Olympic Games, where the team only managed to win the silver medal.
