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

The 65-year-old resigned as national boss earlier this month after the hosts finished fourth at the 2014 World Cup.

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

Ex-Chelsea boss Scolari, who was replaced as Brazil coach by Dunga, has managed Gremio twice before, winning the league with them on three occasions.
