Right now the world of South American soccer is passing by through a particularly strange time, though teams like Uruguay, Argentina, Colombia and Brazil are getting interesting places in the FIFA ranking, the majority of all of those technical directors are in similar positions right now.
At the start of this year, the recognized technical director of the national soccer team of Chile, Jorge Sampaoli, resigned for reasons not known, even at these days, in spite he has been the biggest technical director of the national team, taking them to 27 wins, 9 draws and 8 defeats, achieving 68% efficiency in their game, including the first Copa América for the team. As he said in recently interviews “I see more games but less soccer”.
The recently resign of the acclaimed Venezuela technical director, Noel “Chita” Sanvicente, who previously agreed with the Federación Venezolana de Fútbol (Venezuelan Federation of Football) to be dismissed of his position as the leader of the Vinotinto team, now, the one who will take over will be the ex-goalkeeper of the selection, Rafael Dudamel.
Who seems to be the next? All eyes are looking to the national team of soccer from Brazil, where Carlos “Dunga” Bledorn seems to be teetering on the tightrope, which it can be reflected in the performance of the World Champion team, that right now is at 6th in the FIFA’s ranking, this after his draw with Uruguay.
Amid doubts, the technical director was ratified at his duties, this information, according with Antonio Carlos Nunes, the president of the Confederação Brasileira de Futebol (Confederation of Brazilian Football),
who says that the position of Dunga never was in doubt, and he will be the one that will lead the national team to the Copa America Centenario and the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
