World Cup hosts Brazil fire national team coach

Reuters, SAO PAULO, Brazil

Menezes made a brief statement on Twitter thanking the players and staff and wishing the squad the best of luck.

“I wish every success to the Brazilian national side in fulfilling the fans’ dream of winning the World Cup for a sixth time in 2014,” he said.

Among those in the frame to take over include Scolari, Tite, who took Corinthians to the Copa Libertadores title earlier this year, Muricy Ramalho, who turned down the job before Menezes and is now Santos coach and Abel Braga, who recently led Fluminense to the Brazilian championship title.

Although Sanchez said he was opposed to a foreign coach, some commentators have suggested that Brazil should attempt to hire former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola.
