Brazil find their main in former boss Dunga

DungaAccording to reports Dunga is set to take charge of Brazil for a second time, with an announcement expected at some point today (Tuesday). The Brazilian football confederation have been on the hunt for a new manager since Luiz Felipe Scolari departed by mutual consent, following the Canarinho’s catastrophic end to the 2014 World Cup.

 

Brazil are still reeling from both their crushing semi-final 7-1 defeat to Germany, and the comprehensive 3-0 loss to Holland in the third-place play-off. The devastating results evoke painful memories for the hosts in what was otherwise one of the most memorable World Cups of all time.

The re-building process starts now, with Brazil appearing to have found their man in former boss Dunga, who returns for a second stab at the job. The 50-year-old previously managed his country (from 2006 to 2010) at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, a tournament which saw the five-time champions dumped out at the quarter-final stage by Holland, which turned out to be his final match in charge.

In total Dunga, who captained Brazil to glory at the 1994 World Cup, oversaw 60 matches as manager, winning 42, drawing 12 and losing just six. Meanwhile he led his side to Copa America (2007) and FIFA Confederations Cup (2009) success, and also won a bronze medal in charge of the 2008 Olympic Under-23 football team.

Dunga, who was also linked with the Venezuela national team, has since spent less than a year in charge of former club Internacional. The 50-year-old was sacked last October after just 10 months, after the gaucho team suffered four defeats on the trot, and he has been out-of-work ever since. Dunga’s imminent appointment will no doubt raise a barrel of questions, and whether returning to an old boss is a welcome boost or a hindrance remains to be seen.
