Scolari yet to make decision on Brazil future

Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has said that he is yet to make a decision on his future in the job after their embarrassing World Cup exit on Tuesday, BBC Sport has reported.

The 65-year-old has been heavily criticised since he saw his team collapse to a 7-1 defeat to Germany in the semi-finals in Belo Horizonte, which was their highest defeat since a 6-0 reverse to Uruguay in 1920, as well as the national team’s first home loss in a competitive fixture since 1975.

The former Chelsea boss is currently in his second spell in charge of his country, having led Brazil to World Cup glory in 2002. He returned in December 2012 and went on to win the Confederations Cup in July of the following year, but his future has been placed in considerable doubt after the events at the Estadio Minerao.

When asked about his future on Wednesday, Scolari said: “We still have work. We have a commitment with the CBF (Brazilian Football Confederation) until the end of the World Cup. And the end of the World Cup is Saturday. It is only after this game (against the Netherlands in the third place play-off) we will talk with the direction of the CBF, that’s when we will decide.”
