Tite won't consider contract renewal until after World Cup
Brazil boss Tite says that he will not consider signing a new contract with the Brazilian national team until after the 2018 World Cup. The ex-Corinthians coach has won all of his first 6 games in charge of the Seleção, leading to speculation over whether he might sign a new deal.
However, Tite insists he will assess his team’s performance in Russia before he commits to a new contract, “Renewal is always tied to results. I do not want it to happen (an early proposal for contractual extension),” he told Portuguese publication O Jogo.
“I'd rather wait for the end of the World Cup, because then I can analyse everything in the best possible way. I admit that I have not thought about it yet, when I was a world champion with Corinthians in 2012, I felt that I earned the right to be considered by the Brazilian national team.
"If Brazil is a champion, I want to take some time and analyse the course of my career, because it is difficult to plan football in the long run, but one thing is certain: I will have reached the maximum in terms of professional position."
Brazil currently lead the CONMEBOL table for World Cup qualifying, with matches against Uruguay in Montevideo and Paraguay in São Paulo on the horizon in March.
