Brazil coach Carlos Alberto Parreira has revealed that he will be rushed into making a decision about his future.
His position is under threat after Brazil’s World Cup quarter-final defeat at the hands of France, but Parreira will not make a decision until he has spoken with Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) president Ricardo Teixeira.
“I will only make a decision after talking to the CBF president because of the friendship I have with him,” said 63-year-old Parreira.
“Everybody is sad but I doubt anybody is more sad than me. It’s part of life, part of the game, to lose or to win, and France prepared for it very well.”
Parreira, who led his country to their 1994 World Cup win, is in his third stint in charge of Brazil.
However, he acknowledged that the defeat to France will cast a shadow over his record.
“The game will be marked in our minds until Brazil win another World Cup, which I hope to happen in 2010,” he added.
