Today, the CBF site published an official note to inform that Mano Menezes is the new coach of Brazil National team. Yesterday, Muricy Ramalho was invited, but could not accept the invitation because he already had a contract with another team.
His name is Luis Antônio Venker de Menezes. In Portuguese, “mano” is synonym (not slang) for “brother”; the term “mano”, however, is used as slang for “close friend”.
And Mano is indeed a nice person, close friend to several players, team directors, journalists, etc. His twitter is said to be the second most popular in Brazil – only one popular TV star has more followers than Mano.
As a football player, he only performed in amateur teams, and there is nothing worthy commenting.
CBF considered that these credentials are good enough to lead Mano Menezes to be the the coach who will try to win the World Cup 2014 in Brazil, certainly the most important tournament ever disputed by the Brazilian National Team.
