Corinthians president issues hands off warning to CBF over Tite
Corinthians president Mario Gobbi has slammed the CBF for taking Mano Menezes from them and warns that they will not allow current coach Tite to leave as well.
Menezes left Corinthians in 2010 for the Brazil job and the club's campaign subsequently collapsed after the departure.
"Tite will not leave at all. He has a contract with us until December 2013 and he will be staying. The CBF came in for Mano and his entire coaching staff and took him and then we lost the 2010 Brasileirão. But not here and not now!
"We were in chaos in 2010 when Mano left. We have a job here, a plan. My focus is on Corinthians. Tite has the contract and will stay until the end."
Tite is one of the favourites for the Brazil job, alongside Luiz Felipe Scolari, Murciy Ramalho and Pep Guardiola as the CBF look for Menezes' successor.
