Tite is the new coach of Brazil; Corinthians president says CBF did not deserve him
Dunga was sacked after Brazil's elimination from the group stages of the Copa América Centenário, and Tite has been named as the new coach of the national team.
The news was confirmed by Corinthians president Roberto de Andrade, who was furious with the approach from Brazilian football federation, and said that they did not deserve a professional like Tite. Tite met Brazil FA president Marco Polo Del Nero on Tuesday night and after discussions which lasted three hours, made his decision on Wednesday. Tite, who made Corinthians World Club champions in 2012 with a victory over Premier League side Chelsea, wanted the Brazil job after the dismissal of Luiz Felipe Scolari, but CBF snubbed him and appointed Dunga.
Corinthians president Roberto de Andrade said: "From today, Tite no longer works with us. He has accepted the invitation from CBF. In the game tomorrow [Thursday] he will not lead the team. Along with him, Cleber Xavier, Matheus and Edu Gaspar also leaves."
He added: "I was the first person he told about the decision. Until two hours ago, I thought that he wouldn't go, I was surprised. CBF do not deserve to have a professional with the character that Tite has."
