Brazil fans have right to boo: Scolari
Rio de Janeiro: Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has said he understands the reaction of fans who booed his team in the final minutes of Wednesday`s 2-2 friendly draw with Chile.
The result at Belo Horizonte`s Mineirao Stadium left Scolari with just one win, a loss and three draws from his first five matches since taking over from sacked predecessor Mano Menezes last November.
"We didn`t play well. If we had played better, maybe the fans would have reacted differently," Scolari said on Thursday.
"We didn`t have many chances to score and we let them play their own game. I can`t criticise the fans. When we play well they will react differently."
Brazil has not beaten a former World Cup-winning opponent since November 2009, when they defeated England 1-0 in Doha.
When asked if his position would be under threat should the team not progress beyond the Confederations Cup group stage, Scolari lost his patience.
"I`m not going to answer that. You are joking," he said, before leaving the press conference.
Brazil will prepare for the tournament with friendlies against England at Rio`s revamped Maracana Stadium June 2 and then France at Porto Alegre`s Arena Gremio a week later.
