Brazil Manager

Adenor Leonardo Bacchi (Tite)

Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, more commonly known as “Tite” was appointed manager of the Seleção in 2016 after previous coach Dunga was sacked due to his failure to progress through the group stage of the Copa America. He has had a very long managerial career, starting at Guarany de Garibaldi in 1990 and managing a total of 12 teams after this. Some of these teams include prestigious clubs such as Grêmio, Corinthians, Atlético Mineiro, Palmeiras, and Internacional. He won several trophies in his career including three Campeonato Gaúchos, a Copa do Brasil, a Copa Sul-Americana, and a Campeonato Brasileiro Série A title and Copa Libertadores trophy with Corinthians. In his playing career, he was a central defensive midfielder. Under Tite, Brazil has become a team reborn, topping its qualifying group by 10 points. It now remains to be seen if his decades of experience in the Brazilian league can be used to put together a cohesive world champion team. Brazil goes into the tournament as favorites to win it all, adding a lot of pressure to Tite’s team to perform. He now faces the greatest test of his career: bringing home a record sixth World Cup to the expectant fans of one of football’s greatest dynasties.
