‘End of cycle’ Tite quits as Brazil’s Coach after world cup ouster

Following Brazil’s quarter final defeat to Croatia, Tite has expressed his readiness to quit his role as the Manager of the Samba Boys.

The 61-year-old had earlier revealed in February that he would not remain in charge of the Selecao beyond Qatar 2022.

That the defeat meant Brazil suffered a quarter-final exit in consecutive World Cups under Tite, the gaffer maintained that leaving his role has nothing to do with the result.

Speaking after the game, he noted that he has exhausted his own time and believes that there are other capable hands that can handle the team.

“It is indeed very difficult, but it’s a stalemate now about the end of my cycle with the Brazil squad,” he told reporters.

“I think the cycle ended and I said that [over] half a year ago. I keep to my word; we shouldn’t make a drama about this.

“I said back then there are other great professionals who can replace me. In the past [2018] we lost the World Cup, but I needed a full cycle.Now I had the full cycle. The cycle is over.”

Brazil won the 2019 Copa America trophy and lost the 2021 edition final to Argentina.

Brazil last won the mundial 20 years ago during the Korea/Japan world cup
