RIO DE JANEIRO

Jul 29, 2018-

Brazilian World Cup winning coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has been named as Palmeiras boss for the third time at the age of 69, the Brazilian giants announced. Scolari, who led Brazil to 2002 World Cup glory in Japan and South Korea, was hired just hours after the Sao Paulo based side fired Roger Machado on Thursday, a day after his side lost 1-0 to Fluminense. Former Chelsea manager Scolari “has signed a contract until 2020,” Palmeiras said. He previously coached the nine-time Brazilian champions from 1997 to 2000 and 2010 to 2012, leading them to their only Copa Libertadores success in 1999. (AFP)
