Brazil legend, Pele believes the Selecao has what it takes to be World Cup champions, putting faith in Tite.
Tite took over the Brazil squad in June 2016, and reshaped the team, as they romped to Russia.
“Those who are Brazilian and believe in Brazil always point to Brazil as the favourites,” said Pele at an event to launch the Rio state Championships.
“Tite is managing to make them a team again. At the last World Cup, we had the best players in the world but the team was disorganised.
“It seems that now we’ll have a team and a Selecao that gives us confidence.”
