LONDON: After only a day back with the Brazil squad, Luis Felipe Scolari says he senses it will be more fun this time.
Scolari, who led Brazil to its fifth World Cup title in 2002, is feeling relaxed as his quest begins to deliver the sixth on home soil next year.
Ahead of Wednesday’s friendly against England, Scolari addressed the players for the first time and says “the atmosphere is a lot lighter, a lot more fun ... 10 years ago there were a lot more expectations.”
Struggling to speak due to a sore throat, Scolari still managed to convey a clear message, saying “I can’t imagine any reason I shouldn’t be given a second chance.”
