Luiz Felipe Scolari in no doubt he will continue as Brazil head coach despite ‘catastrophic defeat’
Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has no doubts about continuing his job as the national team head coach despite yesterday's humiliating 7-1 defeat to Germany.
The six-goal semi-final defeat margin was as emphatic as any previously seen in a World Cup and the fallout from yesterday has already started.
AS English quoted the 65-year-old boss, and he admitted it was a catastrophic defeat.
Scolari said: “Will I continue as Brazil manager? I’m in no doubt about that.
“I did what I thought was the correct thing to do [for this game]. It’s a catastrophic, ugly defeat – the worst ever, but we are looking ahead to the future.
“In 2002 we won, today we lost. I was the one who chose the team. We shouldn’t forget that we have a game on Saturday to get through”.
Although Scolari defiantly believes he will carry on as Brazil manager after the World Cup, many are already speculating about who should replace him.
The two men muted as early contenders are Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, more commonly known as Titi, and Cuca.
However, first of all Scolari has a 3rd/4th place play-off to contend with and then afterwards he and the CBF can think about his future.
