Scolari ‘resigns as Brazil coach’

Reports in Brazil have suggested that Luiz Felipe Scolari has resigned as manager of the Brazilian national team, and that his departure will be confirmed by the country’s football federation later on Monday, according to BBC Sport.

Brazilian broadcaster Globo TV has claimed that the 65-year-old has decided to resign after leading his side to fourth place in the World Cup as the host nation. Heavy defeats to eventual winners Germany in the semi-final and to the Netherlands in the third place play-off had appeared to render Scolari’s position untenable.


Scolari’s contract was due to run out after the tournament after a year and-a-half of his second spell in charge. He previously led the country to success in the 2002 World Cup, before going on to spend six years with Portugal as their national team coach.


Discussions between Scolari and Brazilian football officials were held after the reverse to the Netherlands, and it is believed that during those meetings he offered his resignation. During the match itself, he was booed by the home supporters, while he described the 7-1 thrashing by the Germans as the ‘worst day of my life’.
