Ronaldo does not approve of CBF's decision to sack Seleção boss Mano Menezes

Brazil striking legend Ronaldo has slated the decision made by the CBF on Friday to sack Seleção head coach Mano Menezes. 

Ronaldo, 36, who is part of the organizing committee of the 2014 World Cup to be held in Brazil, gave his opinion on the news to Lancenet reporters from Interlagos ahead of this weekend's Formula 1 Grand Prix in São Paulo.

He said: "I think it is not good for Brazilian football and the Brazilian supporters for this climate of instability, uncertainty. They (CBF) took this decision. I would not do it that way, but I'm not there and do not know exactly what the situation is." 

However, the former Barcelona and Real Madrid star praised Pep Guardiola, a possible candidate for the role, but was wary of the reaction to the appointment of a foreign coach.

"He is the best coach. He has now changed the way of playing for Barcelona. He did it very well. I think he would be a great name, but we must see and understand the public's opinion to see if they would approve of a foreign coach. But we also have big names in Brazil.

"Let's hope that in January there will be the announcement of the new coach and we'll see. There is very little time until the World Cup and we have to find a way," he added.
