Rebelo wants Brazil 'disaster' inquiry

Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari reveals the immeasurable pain caused by Brazil's embarrassing 7-1 loss at the hands of Germany.

Brazil's sports minister has called for an inquiry to find out the "root causes of the disaster'' after the 7-1 World Cup semifinal defeat by Germany.

Aldo Rebelo's comments came as Neymar's agent Wagner Ribeiro launched an outburst at Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari calling him "an old jerk, repulsive and conceited''.

Scolari is expected to be replaced when Brazil's tournament comes to an end after the third-place playoff with Netherlands on Saturday, and former Corinthians coach Tite, who led the club to a Copa Libertadores-FIFA Club World Cup double, is the favourite to succeed him.

Rebelo however has called for an inquiry to what has gone wrong with Brazilian football.

The sports minister, who had previously referred to the 1950 final defeat by Uruguay as "national tragedy," told a news conference in Rio de Janeiro: "It's a terrible blemish for Brazilian football because against Germany we have played 12 times and lost only four times.

"We must analyse the root causes of this disaster, learn the lessons and try to correct them so this doesn't happen again, so that Brazil can regain it status in world football.''

Rebelo said the 1950 Brazil team were "a constellation of stars'' and "much better than what we have today.''

Scolari's time with the squad seems to be coming to an abrupt end, and Neymar's agent Ribeiro produced a sarcastic list of "six requirements to be Brazilian coach'' on his Twitter account.

These were:

"1. He trained Portugal and did not win anything. 2. Went to Chelsea and got sacked. 3. Went to coach in Uzbekistan. 4. Returned to Brazil, took a big team [Palmeiras in 2012] and got them relegated. 5. Asked to resign 56 days before the end of the season to avoid the relegation. 6. He's a 'd-------', arrogant, horrible, conceited and ridiculous."

Scolari pointed to a young, developing team and said on Wednesday that his squad were "still developing'' and that most would be in the 2018 World Cup.

Out of the current Brazil squad, only five the 23 players will be under 30 in 2018, while 14 of the current Germany squad will still be in their 20s.

Tite is viewed as Scolari's most likely replacement, with Sao Paulo coach Muricy Ramalho and former Brazil and Real Madrid manager Vanderlei Luxemburgo also in the running.

Scolari has continued to insist his record was something to be proud of, telling a news conference on Wednesday: "It's the first time we reached a semifinal since 2002 so maybe our work wasn't so bad.

"In a year and a half together we played 28 games and won 19, drew six and lost three.

"In official games we won eight, drew two and lost this one -- okay, catastrophically. But this episode is over now. We must look forward.

"We have a commitment with the CBF [Brazilian FA] until the end of the World Cup.

"It is only after this we will talk with the direction of the CBF, that's when we will decide.''
