Tite leaves the national workforce. Failure in two bowls. Six wasted years. No inheritance. A millionaire leaves, but a smaller one as a coach – Prisma
Sao Paulo Brazil
Carlos Alberto Parreira. South Africa, resignation. Fluminense, resignation. South Africa, resignation. retirement.
Dunga. International, resignation. Brazilian national workforce, in 2016, dismissal. Seven years with out a job.
Felipe. Guild, resignation. Guangzhou Evergrande, China. He did not need to renew the contract. Palms, fired, Cruise, fired. Guild, resignation. Atlético Paranaense, retirement.
Since 2006, the path of coaches who failed with the Brazilian workforce has not been thrilling. Even on the opposite, even.
The weight of not successful the World Cup whereas in cost of the solely 5-time champion workforce in the historical past of soccer, in the nation that was privileged to have the biggest participant of all time, Pele, is big.
The coaches go away the choice smaller than they arrived.
Tite is not any exception.
He will set up his departure in a bureaucratic manner right this moment, at CBF.
Exactly the reverse.
He was privileged. He was the solely coach in historical past who had the probability to proceed in cost of Brazil after the workforce misplaced the Cup. Falling out with the national workforce meant compelled dismissal for everybody, from 1930, when the world championships started to be performed.
He mobilized the nation in 2016, taking on the technology that Dunga did not play. His trajectory for Corinthians, with the proper to the unprecedented Libertadores, to the second World Cup, the severe posture that one day warned that Neymar, faking fouls, was not “an instance for his son”.
The manner he saved Brazil in qualifying for the Russian Cup fooled the press, the public and determined sponsors, advertisers. All desperate to win the World Cup once more. Mixing national pleasure with monetary pursuits.
Tite beat Neymar to change into the most contested poster boy of these occasions earlier than the World Cup began.
But actuality arrived. Brazil, who had enjoyable towards their South American brothers, failed towards a European, as already occurred in 2006, towards France in 2010, towards the Netherlands, the unforgettable 7-1 for Germany. Tite’s workforce misplaced to Belgium.
It was a shock to all Tite’s defenders, together with this journalist, to face the tactical distance between Brazil and the Europeans, who improved the strategic half, developed the bodily half and likewise the approach and took 1000’s of South Americans in current a long time to the previous continent.
At the finish of the 2016 World Cup, a few of Tite’s pleasure ended. Questions arose. How did he enable Neymar’s silly, infantile simulations? How did the coach reconcile the privilege given to the household of his quantity 10 to remain at the national workforce resort, with the proper to be current for companions and actress Bruna Marchesin at Brazil’s coaching in Sochi, Russia?
Why did he insist on Gabriel Jesus if the striker was affected by nervousness in the national workforce shirt? Why did not Brazil have the velocity to rebuild their protection after shedding the ball? Score a nook kick at the World Cup? What positioning coaching was this?
Tite’s excuse was that the cycle was too brief. “Just” two years to repair what Dopey had performed incorrect. The president of the CBF, Rogério Caboclo, who was finally banned by the CBF, accused of sexual and ethical harassment and of hiding bottles of wine at the group’s headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, determined to maintain the coach.
According to Caboclo’s evaluation, there was no different coach in the nation aside from Tite with the capability to take over the national workforce. The then president of the CBF didn’t even consider hiring a foreigner.
Caboclo additionally gave in to the demand of the gamers who participated in the Cup. Especially Neymar. They wished Tite to remain.
The defeated coach in Russia obtained 4 extra years of labor and a wage enhance as a present. According to worldwide publications, he earned R$1.6 million. Historic contradiction: the failure in Russia was value a new World Cup and promotion!
“He’s a snake charmer,” exclaimed former Uruguay participant Diego Lugano, referring to Tite. It was the most direct assault on the coach because it was revealed he would stay with the national workforce.
The coach resumed the choice extra uncertainly, unrelated. He determined to reward the gamers who requested him to remain in cost. He determined, as in the plot of a self-assist e book, that the defeated in Russia can be entrenched.
Retained greater than the core of the beginning line-up. Make a sieve for the reserves. He wished to take as a lot of the 2018 athletes as doable to the World Championships in Qatar. Absolutely unhinged in its everlasting preaching that the finest and at its most favorable occasions will all the time be in the choice.
Athletes already had a enormous affect on all the pieces that was determined. Tite had the last say, but the workforce seemed collegiate, with the likes of Thiago Silva, Casemiro, Daniel Alves and, after all, Neymar taking a stand on all the pieces.
The first failure got here, which was scorned by the Brazilian media. Losing the 2021 Copa America in the center of the Maracana to Argentina’s national workforce. A title that lifted Messi’s workforce to the World Cup in Qatar.
Tite accepted 4 years of futile friendlies towards African and Asian groups, as a result of the CBF’s monetary pursuits. Coordinator Juninho Paulista defended himself, saying the Europeans didn’t need to face Brazil. But the CBF by no means confirmed the official rebuttals to the European groups. Or dared to go to FIFA and expose the downside created by the League of Nations, a European competitors created to organize national groups for the World Cup.
Brazil have solely confronted the very weak Czech Republic in 4 years of preparation for the World Cup in Qatar.
Tite has been tactically making ready Brazil for the first World Cup in Asia for nearly three years. Then he “found” Rafinha. And it modified the manner Brazil works. And on the eve of the debut of the choice, towards Serbia, the coach succumbed to the stress of the press and positioned Vinicius Junior in the workforce as effectively. Changing the 4-yr tactical cycle. An incoherent resolution that structurally affected the whole workforce dynamic.
Tite had already agreed to the absurd assembly of the gamers and essential first coaching classes for the World Cup in Turin, Italy. With temperatures of 8 levels to then attain Qatar with 29 levels.
The World Cup got here and Tite started to deal increasingly with the gamers. He determined he would pay tribute to Daniel Alves, 39, two months with out a pitch, experiencing the worst part of his profession. And it took him to the World Cup in Qatar even to make up for lacking the 2018 World Cup when he needed to have surgical procedure on his proper knee.
Against Cameroon, the coach determined that he would put all the reserves on the subject in order that the 26 athletes referred to as up would have the “style” of taking part in at a world championship.
But his most infantile mistake was Alex Telles. Brazil had already misplaced Alex Sandro to damage towards Switzerland. He could not subject his solely left again in a match when the workforce was already ranked.
Tite revealed Brazil’s historical past towards the Africans at the World Cup. An inconsistent reserve workforce in all sectors ended the choice’s first World Cup defeat towards the Africans.
“Put it on me, guess it on me,” stated Tite angrily after I requested him my query shortly after the unforgettable defeat.
More than wounded pleasure was the lack of Alex Telles, who suffered a severe knee damage and would now not take part in the World Cup.
That is, Brazil should improvise on the wings in the elimination matches. Defender Militao shall be the proper-again and Danilo, the proper-hander, shall be on the left. Alex Sandro was nonetheless injured. And Alex Telles was uncovered, wasted.
Then got here the recreation towards South Korea, the straightforward win. Tite determined to behave as a youth coach and let himself be carried away by the pleasure of the gamers. He tried to carry out the Pigeon Dance with Richarlison.
Had Messi tangoed with Scalloni after Argentina’s victory towards a very weak opponent in the final 16 of the Cup, he would have been laughed at.
It was a enormous disrespect, sure. After successful the title, there are celebrations, exaggerated dancing and the involvement of coaches. Another unlucky and unforgettable mark of Tite.
I got here to Croatia for the quarterfinals. Modric’s growing older aspect dominated the match. But in additional time he was exhausted. The workforce has already performed additional time with Japan. Left behind on the scoreboard, Neymar made it 1-0.
But the Brazilian workforce continued to assault, excited to attain one other purpose. The proper factor can be to maintain the benefit of reaching the semi-finals of the Cup. But Titus’ order didn’t come. Casemiro and Fred, the two defensive midfielders, had been up entrance when Croatia counter-attacked to equalise.
In the penalties, all the pieces received worse.
The first to beat Argentina was Messi. In France, Mbappe. Benzema at Real Madrid. That is, the finest collectors provoke the gatherings to present the workforce consolation in making choices. There is not any improvisation, there are practices.
In Brazil, Tite gave approach to Rodrigo. At simply 21 years previous, he assured that he’s able to strike first towards the Croatians. I used to be assured. Tite didn’t contemplate that he was the youngest participant in the national workforce. Anxiety would quickly flip to nervousness. And Rodrigo hit a very dangerous shot, Livakovic had no downside defending.
Neymar insisted on taking the fifth penalty. The guess can be that he’ll decide the qualification for Brazil. Tite surrendered once more. And Brazil’s finest kicker did not even rating. Croatia confirmed one other failure of the World Cup choice.
The fifth in a row. When the United States Cup begins in 2026, will probably be 24 years of fasting.
As the gamers despaired on the pitch, crying, Tite walked in direction of the dressing rooms. The identical coach who did the Pigeon Dance turned his again on his chosen ones.
Tite believed he would have a job at a large European membership after the Qatar Cup.
Did not obtain any invites.
They had been six years in the choice.
Two large disappointments for the Brazilians.
In 2018 and 2022
Today, Tite formally leaves the workforce of the 5-time world champion.
But a a lot “smaller” coach than when he took over in 2016.
And even worse for Brazilian soccer.
He leaves no legacy.
Whoever takes over should begin from scratch.
Tite misplaced a technology in two World Cups.
I did not like Neymar at 26 and 30.
History won’t forgive him for his poor work in the national workforce…
The season of hypothesis about the identify of Tite’s substitute in Brazil’s national workforce opens
