Luigi: Dunga will stay as Internacional head coach
Dunga will remain as head coach of Internacional, insists club president Giovanni Luigi.
The former Brazil international faced chants of "Goodbye Dunga" on Sunday night, as his side were defeated 1-0 by Portuguesa.
Home team defender Índio was sent off in the first half, before Wánderson netted the only goal of the game with five minutes to go, handing Lusa their second win in a week.
Internacional have now won just one of their last five matches and are five points adrift of 4th place Grêmio, who occupy the final Copa Libertadores spot.
"We will stay together until the end of the year, the team staff will be maintained," Luigi told Radio Bandeirantes.
Dunga was downcast when asked for his appraisal of the Portuguesa defeat.
"It was our worst game of the year and we know that," he said to reporters.
The 49 year-old, who led Brazil at the 2010 World Cup, returned to Internacional in December, replacing Fernandão. Dunga spent five years with Inter as a player, across two spells (1980-1984, 1999-2000).
