How coach’s 2014 sabbatical helped lay the foundations for success with Corinthians and Brazil


Tite watched the 2014 World Cup from home.

There had been offers of television work but he had turned them down, preferring to hole up in his office and really focus. He recorded and watched every one of the 64 matches, taking copious notes. He pored over defensive lines and midfield pivots. For someone with a burning interest in tactics, it was a dream month.

Most coaches wouldn’t have had the luxury of being able to obsess over the tournament to quite such a degree. They would have been worrying about training sessions or thinking about transfers. But Tite, in the summer of 2014, had all the time in the world.

He was midway through a sabbatical year that would breathe life into his coaching career, laying the foundations for success with Corinthians and Brazil.
