  • What They're Saying

    "Any coach must be ready to suffer the consequences of their results. Even when teams win tournaments people (in Brazil) don't always praise the coach so imagine what it is like when you lose. But defeat in one match should not have a decisive influence. Had we won that would not have solved all of our problems either. Lessons must be learned from every match."

Menezes' critics in Brazil want to see Luiz Felipe Scolari, coach of Brazil's 2002 World Cup-winning team, to take over. (Telegraph)
