Brazil sacked coach Dunga on Tuesday after the Selecao failed to get out of the group stage at the on going Copa America Centenario taking place in United States according to ESPN.
Peru eliminated Brazil with a 1-0 result on Sunday thanks to a controversial goal that appeared to come off the hand of striker Raul Ruidiaz.
But the manner of the defeat was not enough for Dunga to retain his job, as the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) relieved him of his duties after he returned from the United States on Tuesday.
Sources close to Brazilian club Corinthians told ESPN Brasil that the CBF has already approached their manager Tite to replace Dunga. Tite could also take charge of the Olympic team in August, when hosts Brazil will be in search of their first gold medal.
Technical director Gilmar Rinaldi was also let go after he and Dunga met with CBF president Marco Polo Del Nero on Tuesday.
“The Selecao is the highest point of Brazilian football on the world stage,” Rinaldi said in a news conference. “For some reason, it was on a different path. That ends here, right now.
