BREAKING: Luiz Felipe Scolari to become new Brazil National Team manager on Thursday

Action Images
According to reports across all major Brazilian platforms, former Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari is set to become the new manager of the Brazil National Team.

Felipão, or Big Phil, is set to be announced in the role this Thursday having met with Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) chief Jose Maria Marin on Wednesday and agreed final terms.

The move coincides also with the exit of National Team director Andres Sanches from his post, officially revealed this Wednesday, with 1994 World Cup winning coach Carlos Alberto Parreira tipped to take-over that position.

The move follows the shock decision to sack former coach Mano Menezes on Friday afternoon, in what many see as a political move by Marin as he seeks to establish his power-base in the organisation.

Scolari, of course, is famed for leading Brazil to success at the 2002 World Cup in Japan and Korea, having only taken the job twelve months before the tournament with Brazil struggling to qualify.

The CBF will no doubt hope that the manager, sacked from his job at Palmeiras last month after guiding the Verdão to relegation, will be able to re-kindle the magic of ten years ago and lead a new generation of player to similar success in the competition Brazil will host in 2014.
