    Brazil manager Tite pens new contract until 2022 World Cup


    Brazil manager Tite has signed a new contract which keeps him with the five-time world champions until the end of the 2022 World Cup.

    The 57-year-old who has been in charge since August 2016, is the first Brazil coach to extend his deal after a World Cup since the 1978 edition of the tournament.

    Tite was earmarked to spearhead Brazil's revival having won two titles, a Copa Libertadores and a World Club Cup while coaching Corinthians.

    The Selecao were knocked out by Belgium in the quarter-finals at Russia 2018 in only his second defeat at the helm.

    "The federation has given us the conditions to build an environment of unity and professionalism," Tite said in a statement.

    "It's a great challenge and we are happy to face it, already focused on our next matches and competitions."

    The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) says it is "investing in a long-term project" and has also extended the contract of former Arsenal midfielder Edu, who acts as the team's general manager.
