Dunga Ready To Take Over From Scolari

28 Jul

Dunga is all set to take over the post of Brazil boss from Luiz Felipe Scolari.

There has not been any official announcement of the appointment yet, but, the information coming from the sources suggest that the deal between the confederation and Dunga is done and at some point of time next week, the official announcement would be made.

Dunga has been the manager of Brazil before. He was given the responsibility for the first time in 2006 and he had worked till 2010. He had not done badly in charge at all as the team had won more than 65% matches played under him.
But, after the loss that Brazil suffered in the Round of 8 in the World Cup in South Africa, Dunga left his position.

If Dunga gets appointed for his second stint, there would be a big challenge ahead of him. He would be expected to oversee the transition period of the Brazilian team smoothly. He had done something similar to that during his first tenure as well though.

Dunga is one of those coaches who don’t mind making controversial selections. He doesn’t select a certain player in the team only because of his reputation. He is a bold man and he does what he thinks is correct for the team.
The 50-year Old has also skippered Brazil at the World Cup level. It’s him under whom the men in yellow had become the World Champions in 1994.

Earlier, it was Adenor Leonardo Bacchi who was the favourite to be Scolari’s replacement. Many people in the Brazilian confederation were supposed to be impressed with his work as Corinthians boss and thus, wanted him to be appointed, but, now, it seems that Dunga has left him behind in the race.
