Menezes says no added pressure because of Scolari

Sao Paulo, Brazil:

Mano Menezes says he doesn't feel his job as head of the Brazilian national team is in greater danger because World Cup-winning coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is on the market again.

Menezes has been under pressure for some time because of Brazil's lackluster play as it prepares for the 2014 World Cup at home, and some fans and local media began calling for Scolari to take over the moment his contract with Brazilian club Palmeiras was terminated last week.

Menezes said he doesn't "feel more or less pressured" because Scolari is available. He said the end of Scolari's tenure with Palmeiras only shows that coaches in Brazil "are all the same," in the sense that their situation is always volatile and they can lose their jobs when "losing or winning."
