New coach of Brazil to be revealed on TuesdayIs this the man to be charged with changing the fortunes of the Seleção?
The CBF has confirmed through their official website that the new coach of the Seleção will be revealed on Tuesday at a press conference at the organisation’s headquarters in Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro.
Yesterday the CBF unveiled Gilmar Rinaldi as the new technical coordinator of the national set up. The 1994 world champion dismissed suggestions that a foreigner would be appointed as head coach, fuelling speculation that former team-mate Dunga will take over at the helm.
Dunga initially enjoyed success as coach of the national side, winning both the Copa America in 2007 and the Confederations Cup in 2009 before a disappointing World Cup campaign in 2010, during which he constantly fought with the press.
In 60 games in charge of the Seleção, he won 42 games, drew 12 and lost six.
