Trainer Luiz Felipe Scolari will start working for the Brazilian football club Grêmio for the fourth time. The 72-year-old Scolari, who took the world title with Brazil in 2002 as national coach, signed a contract with the team from Porto Alegre until the end of next year. Scolari is given the assignment to save Grêmio from relegation.
The two-time national champion is at the bottom of the Brazilian competition after eight games with only 2 points. Scolari first became manager of Grêmio in 1987. During its second stint, from 1993 to 1996, the club became champions and also won the Copa Libertadores, the South American variant of the Champions League. In the battle for the World Cup for clubs, Scolari’s team lost to Ajax in Tokyo after penalties.
After winning the 2002 World Cup with Brazil, Scolari was also national coach of Portugal and trainer of Chelsea, among others. At the 2014 World Cup in his own country, Scolari again acted as national coach of the ‘Seleção’. After the historically heavy defeat in the semi-finals against Germany (1-7) Brazil also lost to the Orange (0-3) in the battle for bronze. Scolari then briefly returned to Grêmio.
In recent years he has worked in China and at the Brazilian clubs Palmeiras and Cruzeiro.
