Rio de Janeiro, July 24 IANS | 2 months ago

Brazil's new coach Dunga has named former Internacional assistant manager Andrey Lopes as his deputy.


Lopes had been his assistant at Internacional during Dunga's 10-month spell at the Porto Alegre club before it ended in October, reports Xinhua.

Dunga also named his 1994 World Cup-winning teammate Taffarel as Brazil's goalkeeping coach.

The 48-year-old, a member of Dunga's back-room staff during his first spell in charge of the national team from 2006 to 2010, had been coaching at Galatasaray.

"We have sought a range of professionals from different parts of the country to work with us," Dunga said in a statement released by Brazil's football confederation Wednesday.

"We have brought in some World Cup winners to provide some experience, quality and champion DNA."

Mauro Silva, who also played in Brazil's 1994 World Cup triumph, will work as an assistant alongside Lopes during Brazil's next two friendly matches against Colombia and Ecuador in September.

Dunga said he planned to bring in other experienced coaches to join his managerial staff on a rotational basis.

The 50-year-old was appointed Brazil's manager Tuesday, replacing Luiz Felipe Scolari, who resigned after the team's failure to reach the World Cup final as hosts and pre-tournament favourites.

His Selecao return was said to have come at the behest of his friend and former national teammate Gilmar Rinaldi, who was last week appointed Brazil's new technical director.
