Brazil trying to find coach
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 18 - 07 - 2010

Brazil is taking its time to choose a new coach, the man who will face the hard task of leading the team at home in the 2014 World Cup.
After firing coach Dunga following the disappointing elimination by the Netherlands in the quarterfinals in South Africa, the Brazilian football federation is carefully considering its options before deciding who will be in charge of the five-time champion four years from now.
The federation took a chance in picking Dunga, who had no coaching experience, but this time it may adopt a different approach. Experience will likely be the main requirement, as the pressure for Brazil to succeed at home will be unprecedented.
“To lose in 2010 was justifiable, but to lose in Brazil will be like repeating 1950,” federation president Ricardo Teixeira said recently, referring to the team's 2-1 loss to Uruguay in the 1950 World Cup final in Brazil, when the country hosted the tournament for the first - and last - time.
The federation said it will make the announcement of the new coach by the end of the month, and the main names touted for the job include World Cup winner Luiz Felipe Scolari, former Real Madrid coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo, and three-time Brazilian league champion Muricy Ramalho. Other names reportedly on the list include former player Emerson Leao, Paulo Autuori, and less-experienced coaches such as former AC Milan coach Leonardo, Sao Paulo manager Ricardo Gomes and Corinthians commander Mano Menezes.
Scolari led Brazil to the World Cup title in 2002 and is the favorite for fans, local media and even President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who recently said the former Chelsea manager has a “huge advantage over the other candidates” because of his triumph at the World Cup in Japan and South Korea.
Even some other local coaches are behind the return of Scolari.
“He is the right coach because of all he has achieved so far,” Santos' Dorival Junior said. “He is a great person and has the kind of a profile that everyone in football likes.”
