Brazil Name Dunga New Boss

Brazil have announced that Dunga will return to take charge of the national team, four years after guiding the country to the quarter-finals of the Fifa World Cup.

The former Internacional boss, 50, captained Brazil to the 1994 World Cup title- their fourth triumph.

His first spell with ‘A Selecao’ began in 2006. He then managed Brazil to their second straight Copa America title the next year before advancing into the last eight of the World Cup hosted in South Africa, where they lost out to eventual finalists, the Netherlands. Dunga was dismissed by the CBF in July 2010.

He’s nine-month spell with Internacional- the club with whom he started and ended his playing career- ended in October last year after a series of losses.

“I am immensely happy to be back,” said Dunga.

He replaces Luiz Felipe Scolari, who stepped down after reaching the semi-finals of the 2014 tournament hosted on home soil, but suffered a 7-1 humiliation by eventual champions Germany.

Scolari and his backroom staff all left their post since the World Cup ended last month.

The former Kuwait and Portugal coach led Brazil to their fifth World Cup triumph in 2002.
