Former Brazil coach Tite has signed a deal with Flamengo to take charge as manager until December 2024, the Brazilian club has announced.

The 62-year-old, who has been out of work since Brazil's quarter-final exit at the World Cup in Qatar last year, replaces Jorge Sampaoli.

His predecessor Sampaoli, who took over in April from Portuguese Vitor Pereira, was fired on September 28 after he failed to win a trophy for the club.

Flamengo said in a statement: "(Tite) arrives to take charge of the team in the final stretch of the 'Brasileirao' and throughout next year's season." 

Tite has previously coached a string of Brazilian sides, namely: Corinthians, Gremio, Atletico Mineiro and Palmeiras.


He led Corinthians to a maiden Copa Libertadores title and a Club World Cup crown against Chelsea in 2012

He will take control of his first match for Flamengo, who are fifth after 26 matches, when they play Cruzeiro in a Brazilian championship game on October 19.
