The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) is looking for a coach to replace Tite in charge of the Brazilian national team. The Brazilian’s work under the command of the Selection ended after the World Cup in Qatar. World champion Rivaldo commented on the future coach of Brazil, who is quoted as one of his colleagues from Barcelona in 1999, the former coach of the Spanish national team and Barcelona, ​​Luis Enrique.

“Much has been said that the CBF is looking to hire Luis Enrique, with whom I had a good relationship at Barcelona. As a player, he was an example of dedication and determination on and off the field, and that type of personality can be important. to get the most out of each Brazilian player,” he declared in an interview with Betfair.

Luis Enrique, who was Rivaldo’s teammate at Barcelona, ​​managed the Spanish national team in the World Cup in Qatar, but was eliminated early against Morocco, still in the round of 16. Between 2014 and 2017 he was in charge of Barcelona

“As a coach, I haven’t followed his career closely, but whoever wins what he won at Barcelona makes it clear that he has the quality to lead the national team,” said Rivaldo.

Tite had a good average of victories in the Qualifiers and Copa America, but that wasn’t enough to satisfy the Brazilian fans,” he concluded.
