Several media reports indicate that Brazil have fired their erstwhile manager Dunga following their disappointing campaign at the ongoing 2016 Copa America where they failed to make it out of the group phase.
In competitive fixtures under Dunga during his second spell as Selecao coach, Brazil have managed a pair of victories over Peru, a further two against Venezuela and that thrashing of Haiti.
After the Selecao’s shock Copa America exit at the hands of Peru, the coach had hinted that he had no concerns over his immediate future with the national team.
Brazil were beaten 1-0 by Peru in Foxborough in their last fixture at the Copa America tourney as Raul Ruidiaz appeared to use his hand to bundle a cross home with 15 minutes remaining.
Ecuador’s subsequent 4-0 victory over Haiti means they go through to the quarter-finals along with Peru, with eight-time Copa winners Brazil failing to progress beyond the group stage for the first time since 1987.
The Brazil football fedration is yet to make an official statement on the coach’s sack.
