Menezes in Shock Retirement


Brazil Football Confederation President Ricardo Teixiera called a press conference early this morning to announce the departure of Mano Menezes. The former Corinthians man remained speechless for most of the entire press conference and when asked he told the press how his relationship with Teixeira was one of the key factors for his departure.

The question that remains now is who will be the man chosen to bring samba back to the Brazilian National team with Luis Felipe Scolari thought to be everyones favourite to return to Brazil.

After days of speculation that Luis Felipe Scolari will be returning to the Brazilian National Squad, Brazilian Football President Ricardo Teixiera has finally called another press conference to confirm who he has finally chosen to take over Brazil. Alongside Scolari, other names have been mentioned such as the legend Zico, Fluminense Manager Muricy Ramalho and even Vanderlei Luxemburgo.

Finally the moment arrived for when Brazilian football president was going to publicly announce who will be the man to take over the most wanted job in Brazil. As president Ricardo Teixiera sat down to give his speach. The was a look of anxiety on the local press to who the new manager would be and were was he.

After settling down Teixeira announced that the decision wasnt taken lightly and that most of Brazil would probably be shocked but also excited in the same time. He went on to say he is confident Brazil will havc the samba feel back again that was missing under future managers and even the former great Pele has backed the decision.

After a very long wait Teixeira announced that the most capped player in Brazilian history Marcos Evangelista de Moraes (Cafu) would be the man to bring the samba beat back to the national squad. With a bit of disbelieve the press soon calmed down and began to take note on what was a real shock for most people worldwide. Cafu went on to confirm he has been working hard completing his coaching badges and working behind the scenes at local club Sao Paulo watching and learning every bit of coaching needed. He also told the press he will be bring in some coaching staff that he believed to be some of the best coaches and physios in the world.
