Menezes denies feeling the pressure as calls for Scolari grow louder
"I have never asked for guarantees," Menezes told reporters. "I know what I need to do to keep my job until the World Cup.
"We have to be smart about how we measure our success, sometimes the results won't come with great performances, it's not always possible for that to happen."
Menezes also explained his call up of Real Madrid's Kaka: "We need players as experienced as Kaka is with the national team.
"We think that he will come here and show that he has improved. We know that this season will be key for him so we can start counting on him as a national-team player again in the future."
Menezes has been feeling the wrath of Brazil supporters as they chanted for Scolari's return in the first leg of the Superclasico as the 2002 World Cup winning coach left his job at Palmeiras.
The Superclasico second leg will get underway tomorrow as Brazil go into the match 2-1 up courtesy of goals from Paulinho and Neymar.
