Brazil national team manager Tite is now set to leave the side, following the country’s World Cup exit.
Despite a decent performance, Brazil lost to Croatia on penalties and a campaign that started with sparkling brilliance ended with disappointment of losing the lottery of the shootouts.
Tite has now announced that he is leaving the national team and this is the end of a cycle, with the manager stating that he doesn’t have too many words to say about the moment.
He stated: “The defeat is painful. It is the end of a cycle. I’m not a man of many words, anyone who knows me knows that. I spoke more than two years ago. There are other great professionals.”
Brazil had beaten Serbia, South Korea and Switzerland in the World Cup and Croatia have now won all of their penalty shootouts in the World Cup.
