OFFICIAL: Tite extends Brazil contract to 2022 World Cup
His hopes of taking home Brazil’s sixth title, however, were dashed by Belgium, who downed Neymar and Co. in a 2-1 quarter final victory.
But Tite remains a popular figure in his native country, and has seen the CBF back him for another four years.
“Tite and Edu Gaspar have shown their alignment to the values we hold dear at the CBF, such as talent, competence and dedication”, CBF CEO Rogerio Caboclo signalled on Wednesday as the coach and national team coordinator were confirmed in their posts.
“The CBF is investing in a long-term project as it guarantees the coaching team six years and a half at the head of the national team.
Tite affirmed that he was looking forward to the challenge of delivering silverware with the Selecao, starting with 2019’s Copa America on home soil.
“It’s a great challenge, and we’re happy to face it, already focusing the next matches and competitions.”
Brazil’s last major trophy came in 2013, when the hosts lifted the Confederations Cup.
