Back to basics for Brazil?

It seems so according to Sambafoot:

According to reports across all major Brazilian platforms, former Chelsea boss Luis Felipe Scolari is set to become the new manager of the Brazil National Team.

Felipão, or Big Phil, is set to be announced in the role this Thursday having met with Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) chief Jose Maria Marin on Wednesday and agreed final terms.

The move coincides also with the exit of National Team director Andres Sanches from his post, officially revealed this Wednesday, with 1994 World Cup winning coach Carlos Alberto Parreira tipped to take-over that position.

This is quite the pairing, considering both are World Cup winners with Brazil (2002 and 1994 respectively). There are a lot of questions about whether Big Phil and Parreira are both suited on present circumstances in world football. Scolari was let go of Palmeiras on their way to being relegated from the Campeonato, and Parreira hasn’t managed any team since South Africa for the 2010 World Cup.

Sambafoot asserts the move involves internal politics within the CBF. And those kinds of appointments always turn out great…
