m_Scolari leaves decision on future to CBF

Luiz Felipe Scolari

Luiz Felipe Scolari has left a decision on his future as coach of Brazil to the country’s federation after the World Cup hosts’ campaign ended in more disappointment.

“It is up to the president to decide. We will hand in a final report and then leave it to him to analyse what needs to be done,” said Scolari after Brazil lost 3-0 to the Netherlands in the third-place play-off in Brasilia on Saturda

“I’m not going to discuss (my future) with you. Winning or losing that is what we would have done.”

Scolari’s contract expires with the end of Brazil’s campaign but there have been suggestions that he could stay on until the end of the year.

Saturday’s loss came on top of Tuesday’s 7-1 mauling by Germany in the semi-final in Belo Horizonte.
