Dunga confirmed as the new coach of Internacional
Internacional have called a press conference for Wednesday evening to officially announce their former player, and former Brazil captain, Dunga as their new coach.
Dunga, 49, who has not coached since resigning as the Brazilian national team coach after the poor showing at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, will take over at the Porto Alegre club from Fernandão, who was sacked last month.
“Gaúcho football has a feature and it must be respected,” Dunga told reporters as he left his lawyers house on Wednesday afternoon.
“It's the way the fans like to see the team playing. We will have an aggressive team. Inter have always had this and let's keep this tradition.”
“We are building a team, evaluating the group of players. [President Giovanni] Luigi already knows what I think.
“We are working for a long time in these solutions. Let's make a gradual change. Today's meeting was very positive. Each put their opinions forward and now we start the work”.
Dunga is loved at Internacional as a result of his time playing for the club, but knows he has a difficult task to get the club back on the right track.
“It is a great expectation. To have the approval of the crowd is good. Here is the city where I live, is the club that I support and now I hope to contribute to it as well. No doubt there will be recovery, but I'm ready for it."
