Scolari Resigns As Brazil Coach

BigPhilScolariNo surprise to hear from the Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) that coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has resigned after his nations disappointing fourth place finish in the World Cup.

A statement on the CBF website read:

“Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari and his fellow coaching staff surrendered their positions to the board of the Brazilian Football Confederation. The resignation was accepted by president Marin, who was keen to thank all the coaches and players and, by extension, the Brazilian fans for their support throughout the World Cup campaign.

“Scolari and his entire coaching staff deserve our respect and gratitude. They were responsible for returning to the Brazilian people your love for the team, despite not having achieved our greatest goal.”

The 2014 World Cup was the first time in some 39 years Brazil had tasted defeat in a competitive fixture at home, having lifted the Confederations Cup 12 months ago.

Scolari’s contract was up after the World Cup and there had been questions even ahead of the tournament whether he would be retained. Those questions became mute Brazil after were thrashed 7-1 by Germany in the semi-finals then lost 3-0 to the Netherlands in the play-off. The two biggest back-to-back defeats in their history.

Both the Germany and Dutch defeats highlighted a lack of tactical nuance by Scolari, surprising considering he did win the World Cup in 2002. But in both defeats he got his tactics wrong, and then seemed unable to react and adjust to the carnage that was taking place in front of him.
