Brazil continued a mass clear out of their World Cup backroom staff on Tuesday following the resignation of coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.
Team doctor Jose Luis Runco and head of communications Rodrigo Paiva became the latest casualties of a campaign that turned on its head with the 7-1 semifinal mauling at the hands of eventual champions Germany, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said.
Scolari and his assistants went on Monday.[eap_ad_2]
Paiva was suspended during the tournament for striking Chilean player Mauricio Pinilla during their last 16 match, which Brazil narrowly won on penalties.
Only head of logistics Guilherme Ribeiro has survived the cull.
