Romario calls for celebration of Menezes exit
Brazilian footballing idol Romario has quickly moved to have his say on the dismissal of Mano Menezes as Brazil coach, calling for a day of fireworks and celebration.
Romario, now in politics, has been a vocal critic of Mano Menezes' spell as coach of the Seleção for some time, previously calling for his sacking on several occasions and labelling the coach an "idiot and an imbecile".
Following the news of the coach's sacking on Friday afternoon, Romario took to Twitter to celebrate and pat himself on the back for calling for the sacking long ago:
"Guys, today is a historic day on which Brazil should release fireworks and party. At last these incompetent guys on the board of the CBF have done something good for Brazilian football.
"I was sure that it would happen, it took a while, but he is gone. Regarding Mano, good riddance."
Not content to stop there, Romario also gave his opinion on who should lead the country into the 2014 World Cup, opting for Luis Felipe Scolari - the coach who denied him a call to the 2002 tournament against a tide of public opinion.
"In my opinion, the coach should be Felipão and the team director, if Andrés Sanches goes, would ideally be Raí," he concluded.
