New Technical Director Rinaldi has close relationship with Dunga
Gilmar Rinaldi, the man charged with helping Brazil's post-World Cup revamp, has said that the appointment of Dunga as head coach to replace Luiz Felipe Scolari is part of a bigger picture that will see the country return to winning ways.
Rinaldi, who was part of the 1994 World Cup-winning squad in the USA, told reporters at Dunga's unveiling yesterday: "We can now officially start our work. We have started talking about the staff, but that won't be announced today."
"We are now talking about how important it is for players to get that feeling in the pit of their stomachs around the time that national team call-ups are announced."
On his relationship with the new boss, Rinaldi added: "I know Dunga very well, I know how he thinks and acts. We have very similar views."
"The national team is too important, so this wasn't an invitation to come back, it was a call-up."
