Brazil have appointed former head coach Dunga after sacking Luiz Felipe Scolari last week.
Dunga managed the team from 2006 to 2010, before he was dismissed for only reaching the quarter finals of the 2010 World Cup. He was criticised at the time by Brazilian legend Pelé for his team selections.
The 50-year-old made 91 caps for his country as a player and also led his country to the 1994 World Cup triumph.
Dunga will have his work cut out for him after Brazil crashed out of the recent World Cup losing 7-1 and 3-0 to Germany and Netherlands respectively. However the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) showed their confidence in him at a press conference on Tuesday.
“He was a world champion, captain of a world champion side… He has what it takes to lead the Brazil team,” said CBF President Jose Maria Marin.
The World Cup winner said he is happy to be back and wants to get straight back to work. – Chris Matthews-Darby
