The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) confirmed Wednesday former Sao Paulo boss Dorival Junior has been named coach of the Brazilian men’s national team, taking over the five-time world champions after a string of poor results.

Dorival, whose appointment to the job was first announced Sunday by his former club, will be formally presented at CBF headquarters in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday, the confederation said in a statement.

The CBF did not specify the length of his contract. Brazilian media reports said it would run through the 2026 World Cup. He replaces fellow Brazilian Fernando Diniz, who held the job on an interim basis from July 2023 until he was sacked last Friday.
