Tite early favourite to replace Luiz Felipe Scolari at Brazilby Jack Kitson / 15 July 2014, 11:02Tweet
Brazil are on the hunt for a new manager following the departure of Luiz Felipe Scolari, who resigned from his post on Monday after a disastrous end to the 2014 World Cup. The decision comes after Brazil's 7-1 thrashing by Germany and 3-0 defeat to Holland, which meant they had to settle for fourth place.
A Selecao are desperate to put the shambolic end to their home tournament behind them, and appoint a manager that can rebuild Brazilian football. Former Corinthians boss Tite has been installed as the early 6/4 favourite with Paddy Power to be that man, while he is followed by Sao Paulo manager Muricy Ramalho (5/2) and Bayern Munich’s Pep Guardiola (9/2). Also in the mix are the likes of are Chile gaffer Jorge Sampaoli and Jose Mourinho, both at 10/1, whereas Ronaldo is a surprise addition at 14/1.
Despite the shocking end to his second spell in charge Scolari did of course memorably lead his country to World Cup glory back in 2012, while they won the 2013 Confederations Cup in style after comprehensively beating Spain in the Final.
