The Brazilian national team manager Mano Menezes has said that he is not concerned about the chanting of fans calling for the return of the former manager Luiz Felipe Scolari. The former Chelsea and Portugal national team manager is currently out of work after having been recently sacked by his team Palmeiras.
Scolari is the last Brazilian manager to have lifted the World Cup. He took over from the national team in very similar circumstances back in 2002 and led them to the World Cup success. He has since managed the Portugal national team and the Premier league club Chelsea before returning to Brazil with Palmeiras.
After hugely successful initial period with Palmeiras, the team has been struggling of late and they have decided to part company with the former Brazilian manager. Now, there have been a lot of rumours that Scolari will be set for a return to the national team. The Brazilian fans have grown tired of the current manager Mano Menezes, who was in charge of the team at the London Olympics 2012 when they lost in the final to Mexico. However, Mano Menezes has indicated that he has no worries about the availability of Scolari.
"It doesn't upset me. I think it's natural, because of the circumstances. He won Brazil's fifth world title, fans like him a lot, he is a winner. I'm not bothered, I'm not losing my cool or my ability to command the team on the sideline. It's one of those things that you just put aside. I have nothing against the fans. But I'm not going to make substitutions based on what the fans think or what the fans do," Menezes said after the lacklustre 2-1 win over an under strength Argentina team in a recent friendly match at the Estado de Goiás.
