Brazil coach Tite announced that he will leave his position after the 2022 World Cup, which will be held in November, after taking the position in 2016.
Tite confirmed, in statements to the Brazilian “Sportv” channel, that the next 2022 World Cup will be his last coaching career for the Brazilian national team.
The 60-year-old Tite took over the coaching of the Seleção national team in June 2016, succeeding former coach Dunga, following the Brazilian team’s exit from the Copa America.
Tite led the Brazilian national team in 70 matches, winning 51 matches, drawing 14 and losing 5 matches. The team scored 142 goals and conceded 25 goals.
He won the 2019 Copa America with Brazil, runner-up to the last edition, and reached the 2018 World Cup quarter-finals.
The Brazilian team succeeded in qualifying early for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, by topping the South American qualifiers table.
