Brazilian Chief Coach, Luiz Nizzo, is set to quit the job of youth football development after the on-going Fifa Under-17 World Cup after his team was beaten twice in the group stage.
â€œAfter 22 years inÂ youth football, I think Iâ€™m done with it. I’ve made my decision concerning that. I’m not getting younger. Grey hairs have taken over my head. Itâ€™s time I call it quitâ€, he sounded after his futile attempts to dominate the group B fixtures in Lagos that had Switzerland, Japan and Mexico.
Nizzo insisted that he was done with youth football but would look up to handling the bigger boys.
â€œI have finished my job with the Under-17 and I am looking at something else, maybe a job with the senior team. Itâ€™s a decision I have taken before now, and it is not because of the outcome of the result so far.
â€œThe pressure is too much in the U-17 job. Everything was done for us to get to the next round, but it is unfortunate the result is sadâ€, he said.
Coach Nizzo said that it was time for him to climb the ladder because â€œI have nine of my players who have graduated to Brazil national teamâ€.
