CBF: Scolari's job is safe

Luiz Felipe Scolari has been backed by the Brazilian football federation (CBF), who have stated the national team coach will not be sacked if he cannot win this summer's Confederations Cup.

Scolari's men will face reigning Asian Cup champions Japan, CONCACAF Gold Cup winners Mexico, and Italy, runners-up in last year's European Championship, in June.

Expectations are high with the tournament to be played in the 2014 World Cup host nation, but reports in Brazil have suggested Scolari's tenure could be under threat following a string of sub-par results.

Indeed Brazil have only won once since Scolari took over last November, but CBF chief Jose Maria Marin has moved to quell any suggestion the former Chelsea boss may lose his job.

"Of course we want to win the Confederations Cup, especially because we are not playing the World Cup Qualifiers.

"But if that goal is not achieved, nothing will change regarding Luiz Felipe Scolari and his staff's job. We are on a good path and they will keep working as usual," Marin said.
