Robert Carlos criticises Dunga appointment
Roberto Carlos has criticised the CBF’s decision to appoint Gilmar Rinaldi as technical coordinator and Dunga as head coach of the Seleção.
In a telephone interview with UOL Esporte, the 2002 World Cup winner was heavily critical of the CBF’s president José Maria Marin.
For Carlos, capped a total of 125 times for his country, a change is what was needed in Brazilian football, and not a repetition of the past.
“I’m not in favour of constantly changing the manager but a change was necessary after the World Cup.
“So what happens? They go and bring in Dunga who has already been a manager there, already been a player there and was under a lot of pressure when he was there.
“Nobody expected to see Gilmar involved, not least because most recently he’s been working as an agent. This isn’t normal.”
The 41-year-old, currently manager of Turkish side Sivasspor, went on to suggest that São Paulo coach Muricy Ramalho would have been a better choice to take over the reins of the Seleção.
“Everybody thought that it could have been Muricy.”
