Tite QUITS as manager of Brazil less than two hours after their World Cup defeat by Croatia… bringing an end to his six-year stint in charge
Tite has quit as manager of Brazil after their shock elimination from the World Cup.
Brazil lost 4-2 in a penalty shootout to 2018 runners-up Croatia, after the match at the Education City Stadium ended goalless after 90 minutes and 1-1 in extra time.
Speaking less than two hours after their exit, Tite revealed it was ‘the end of my cycle’, with Brazil looking to regroup ahead of the 2026 World Cup, which will be a 48-team extravaganza held in North America.

The 61-year-old ex-Corinthians boss took charge of the Brazilian national side in 2016, replacing Dunga. He managed 81 matches, winning 60 of those contests.
During his time, they won the 2019 Copa America, and finished runners-up two years later. However, in both 2018 and 2022 World Cups, they fell at the quarter-final stage, against Belgium and Croatia respectively.
It has already started speculation about who will take on the role next.
