Scolari tended his departure yesterday and his employers said: "Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari and his fellow coaching staff surrendered their resignations to the bored of the Brazilian Football Confederation."
"The resignation was accepted by President Marin, who was keen to thank all committee members and players and, by extension, the Brazilian fans for showing love to the Brazilian national team throughout the World Cup campaign."
"Scolari and his entire coaching staff deserve our repect and gratitude. They were responsible for returning to the Brazilian people your love for Selecao, despite not achieving our greatest goal."
