Tite has confirmed he will step down as Brazil coach following the Selecao's elimination at the World Cup once his contract expires.
Brazil had been tipped as one of the favorites ahead of the tournament in Qatar but fell to Croatia in the quarter-finals and were eliminated on penalties after a 1-1 draw.
After the game, Tite confirmed his intention to part ways with the Brazil national team.
"A painful defeat, but I'm at peace with myself. It's the end of my cycle," he said at a press conference.
"I decided that over a year and a half ago. I'm not a duplicitous guy. I didn't play to win and then make drama of my future. Anyone who knows me knows that. It was a whole process . Before it was a recovery process, but now it had a whole sequel."
When asked about his overall performance as Brazil national team coach, Tite replied: "Only time will tell. The pain, human as it is...emotions run high. I am unable to accept all the work that has been done assess. Over time you will make that assessment, I don't have that ability now after a knockout."
