Zico thanks Scolari but suggests Sao Paulo boss Muricy should take over the role of head coachScolari is expected to leave his position soon
Brazil legend Zico has suggested that the time might be right for head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari to leave his post in the wake of the country's relatively successful but ultimately embarrassing World Cup exit.
The 71-times capped Zico voiced his opinion on the matter, saying: "We should thank Scolari and thank Parreira (Carlos Alberto, the assistant). But we need to choose new people with new thoughts about how to play the Brazilian way."
Regarding a potential successor, Zico added of Sao Paulo boss Muricy Ramalho: "He is one of the greatest champions of the Brazilian league."
Muricy has enjoyed three spells at his current club, famously leading them to an incredible three straight Brazilian league titles between 2006 and 2008.
However, tempting the 58 year-old into international management may prove tricky as his Sao Paulo squad is brimming with an attacking flair currently lacking in the national side, with the likes of Paulo Henrique Ganso and Alexandre Pato at his disposal.
