Alberto: Menezes sacking ill-timed

Former Brazil right-back Carlos Alberto has criticised the Brazilian Football Federation for their sacking of Mano Menezes.

The 50-year-old Menezes was released from duty only 19 months before the 2014 World Cup after failing to deliver both the Copa America and Olympic trophies.

And, although Alberto was not surprised by the sacking, the timing of the decision left him bemused.

“I would be more surprised by the sacking of Mano Menezes if I weren’t Brazilian and didn’t know how football works,” Alberto told Brazil.

“This is nothing jaw-dropping, people had been talking for sometime that he was going to lose his job. It seems to me the time to send him packing was not the best.

“I have the impression the decision was already made by the Brazilian FA but I still don’t understand why the guy loses his job right after beating Argentina away.”
