Former Brazil football team manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has been named as the new coach of Brazilian top-flight team Gremio.

Scolari resigned as national boss earlier this month after he failed to guide the World Cup 2014 hosts to the finals, as they finished fourth in the tournament, The BBC reported.

Under Scolari's reign Brazil lost 7-1 to Germany in the semi-finals before Netherlands beat them 3-0 in the third-place play-off.

The former Chelsea boss, who was replaced as Brazil coach by Dunga, has managed Gremio twice before and led them to Brazilian championship in 1995, the report added.
