Ronaldo wants Tite to remain Brazil coach

Moscow, July 7: Legendary striker Ronaldo has backed Tite to remain coach of Brazil despite the team’s defeat to Belgium.

“I think that Tite should stay,” Ronaldo, a two-time World Cup winner with Brazil, said in his commentary for TV Globo.

“He is a sensational guy and is doing a sensational job. His work has to continue. In fact, his responsibility should extend to youth football. And the Brazilian league needs to adopt the changes that he is seeking.”
Tite took charge of Brazil in June 2016, with the team languishing in sixth place in the World Cup’s South American qualifying group.

He oversaw an immediate change of fortunes as the Selecao won nine consecutive qualifiers to become the first team to secure a place in Russia. IANS
