Dunga to lead Brazil in Copa América, but CBF wants a new coach for the Olympic Games
The situation of Dunga as coach of the Brazilian national team is very uncomfortable.
Behind the scenes of the CBF, the criticism of Dunga's work grew after the latest results of the national team. According to the information from Globo Esporte, leaders with influence in decision making are already discussing the need to reduce the powers of both Dunga as well as team coordinator Gilmar Rinaldi. Dunga was supposed to be in charge of the side competing in the Olympic Games this August, but an idea that gains strength now is to appoint a new coach for the tournament in Rio de Janeiro. For the leaders, Dunga can lead the side during the Copa América Centenário in June, but wants a new name to take charge for the Olympics. It's important to remember that the Olympic Gold medal is the only title missing from Brazil's trophy cabinet, and is considered much more important than the competition in United States.
The interim coach would be an outsider, and not Rogério Micale, who led the U23 side in recent matches. Brazil drew with Paraguay on Tuesday for the World Cup qualifiers, and currently sits 6th in the standings. The new plans of CBF highlights their concern over Dunga and Gilmar, and the performances in the Copa América Centenário can decide the coach's future with the national side.
