Corinthians manager Adenor Leonardo Bacchi 'Tite' has been named as the new head coach of Brazil's national soccer team, succeeding sacked coach Carlos Caetano Bledorn Verri 'Dunga', his club has confirmed.

"As of this moment, Tite no longer works for us. He has accepted the CBF's (Brazilian Football Confederation) invitation. Today was his last day with the club," Corinthians president Roberto de Andrade announced at a press conference on Wednesday.

He added that Tite "will not be in control for Thursday's game (against Fluminense) and Cleber Xavier, Matheus and his son Edu Gaspar" who were part of the coaching staff will also be leaving with Tite.

Tite had twice rejected the offer to lead Brazil's national team and chose not be in charge of the Under-23 national team for the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, which has the challenge of winning the first gold medal.

CBF confirmed that Rogerio Micale will take charge of the Under-23 team at Rio 2016.

Tite, 55, won Brazil's Serie A with Corinthians as the manager. He was a player and graduated as a physical educator from the University of Campinas (Unicamp).
