I had no idea I was dismissed - Brazil assistant

Brazil's coaching staff found out that they were no longer in charge of the national team through the football association's official website, assistant Carlos Alberto Parreira says.

The departure of Luis Felipe Scolari and his background staff was confirmed on Monday night after they handed in their resignations. The Selecao had failed to win the World Cup on home soil after losing 7-1 to Germany in the semi-final before succumbing to Netherlands in the third place play-off.

And the Brazilian Football Confederation confirmed the coach and his background staff have been relieved of their duties, but Parreira has revealed the governing body failed to contact him directly and he had no idea until he had read the CBF's statement.


"I'm waiting on an answer from the CBF about my future and of all the coaching staff," he was quoted as saying by ESPN Brazil. "They still haven't contacted me about this.

"I really didn't know about this information. So, you know, the staff is no longer in charge of the team, this is CBF's position, but it's all news to me, I wasn't aware of that until now."
