Brazil has named its new football coach. Mano Menezes is now the new coach of Brazil's National football team. Brazil has named Menezes name on Saturday and signed him till 2014 World Cup that would be held in Brazil.

Earlier Muricy Ramalho was the first choice to replace Dunga, but he turned down the offer and opted to stay in Brazilian club Fluminense.

Menezes coached Brazilian club Corinthians from 2008-10. He was released from his contract with the club to become Brazil's new manager. Menezes previously coached Brazilian club Gremio.

"I have always dreamed of one day becoming the national team's coach, and that day came sooner than I expected," Menezes told a news conference.

Menezes led Gremio to promotion to Brazil's top division in 2005. He also led the team to second place in the Copa Libertadores, which is South America's top club event, during his tenure. Menezes also returned Corinthians to the top flight and claimed the Brazilian Cup last season with the club.

Brazil will play its first match under Menezes on Aug. 10 against the United States.
