Another World Cup coach bites the dust.
Dunga has been sacked as Brazil coach following his country’s quarter-final exit from the World Cup.
A statement from the Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) confirmed the former captain has been dismissed, along with his entire coaching staff.
Dunga, 46, who returned with his squad to Brazil on Sunday, had already said he was likely to go after the 2-1 defeat by the Netherlands on Friday.
The CBF revealed that a new coach would be installed by the end of the month.
Corinthians manager Mano Menezes and former AC Milan coach Leonardo have already been tipped as possible successors as well as former Brazil coach Wanderley Luxemburgo.
Luiz Felipe Scolari, who led Brazil to a fifth World Cup triumph in 2002, has ruled himself out because of his commitments with club side Palmeiras.
Dunga, whose full name is Carlos Caetano Bledorn Verri, is a legend in his homeland after captaining his side to World Cup victory in the United States in 1994.
He took over as coach of the national side in 2006, replacing Carlos Alberto Parreira, despite having no prior professional coaching experience. (BBC Sport)
My abiding memory of Dunga from this World Cup is of the Brazilian coach getting progressively more and more annoyed with Arjen Robben’s constant diving, which led the 46 year old to repeatedly smash the perspex roof of his dug out in frustration.
There will be many other coaches heading for national exits before long.
