Former Brazil manager Mano Menezes believes his country lack the knowledge required to develop players into world class stars.

Menezes, who was Brazilian manager between 2010 and 2012, also thinks Brazilian clubs in general need to keep managers in their job for longer than they currently do.

Coaches of Brazilian club teams often don’t get too long in the hotseat before they are under pressure and inevitably sacked and Menezes believes that needs to change.

Soccerly quoted the former national team boss after he spoke to TV Esporte Mais.

Menezes said: "We know exactly what our problems are, but we don't know how to fix them or we lack capable people with knowledge to understand the best path to take.

"This is what Brazilian football lacks, then (if we fixed the problems) we certainly could keep managers longer and improve the development of players, which is something that has declined a lot."

The aftermath of Brazil's horror World Cup showing has already started and it appears all high profile names and figures will give their own opinion on what Brazil needs to do now.
