Brazil players have backed their federation's reported decision to offer coach Tite a new contract after the team were eliminated from the World Cup in Russia at the quarter-final stage.
"He has done amazing work," defender Miranda said. "He has had a good World Cup with us and we cannot judge the work of a coach on one game. I think he should stay, then the Selecao would be on right path."
Brazilian media reported on Sunday that Tite, 57, was minded to accept a new four-year contract by the association (CBF). His current deal is about to expire and if he agreed, and fulfilled the new contract, he would be just the third coach after Mario Zagallo and Tele Santana to lead Brazil to two World Cups.
"I am always in favour of giving a coach time, especially with the Selecao," said Renato Augusto, who scored Brazil's goal in the 2-1 defeat to Belgium which ended their stay in Russia. "He and his team have done great work and should continue."
Tite left his future open in the immediate aftermath of the loss to Belgium. It was only the second defeat in his 26-game reign, which has seen 20 victories since he took over in 2016 following the Copa America Centenario.
the World Cup you are always questioned if you don't win," said striker Gabriel Jesus. "But we all know the importance of Tite and how he has revolutionised our football.
"And in my opinion, as well as in the opinion of the fans, Tite must stay."
