Tite named Brazil coach

Tite has been named as the new coach of Brazil, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CFB) has announced.

The former Corinthians coach takes over from Dunga, who was replaced after Brazil's failure to reach the knockout stages of the Copa America.

Tite takes over the national team after guiding Corinthians to a second Campeonato Brasileiro title in 2015.

"Now the time has come, I understood that I should accept being coach of the Brazilian national team and that should be part of my career," he said.

"It's a personal goal and perhaps my best professional moment."
