After a torrid Copa America Centenario run that saw Brazil exit the tournament at the very first hurdle, the board decided that it was time to let go of their manager Dunga.
With only one win in their three group games, Brazil were the Copa America’s first major casualty as they crashed out in the very first stage of the competition. Head-coach Dunga was rumoured to be sacked a week prior to the final judgement, but on Tuesday, it was made official by the Board.
This is how fans around the world reacted:
Dunga, who should never have been appointed in the first place, sacked as Brazil manager after Copa elimination (& everything else) #CA2016

@BrazilStats2 Is Dunga getting sacked anytime soon? That’d be best for Coutinho.

Dunga sacked as coach of Brasil. Cagey and nervous in his style, he was the complete antithesis of what a Brasilian coach should be #brasil

There’s interest in Dunga from China. They believe that Dunga’s aggressive style can help players to be obedient and disciplined tactically.

Is Wilmots the European Dunga?
So much talent to mismanage.

It’ll be a shame to see Dunga lose his job as Brazil manager in due course. But I’m heartened as we know he’ll be hired again in 2019.
