Edson Arantes do Nascimento, the Brazilian soccer star better known as Pele, said he supported on Friday a renewal of the Brazilian national soccer team, and supported its new coach Carlos Caetano Bledorn Verri, better knownas Dunga.

Dunga "has all the requisites needed by a great manager," Pele told the Brazilian Soccer Federation website. Pele took part in the 1958, 1962 and 1970 Brazilian teams that won the World Cup, but criticized the 2006 team, which was defeated by France because of tiredness.

"In 1970 there was a reshuffle because the build of the team that were champions in 1958 and 1962 were tired out," Pele said. "This always happens in moments of transition. But it is important that the renewal is gradual, as Dunga is doing," he added.

He spoke to the website from Kuwait, where he is a special guest at the Brazil-Kuwait friendly.

King Pele, as Brazilians call him, said that victory in football also depends on luck, and that Dunga, who was part of 1994's World-Cup-winning Brazil team, had shown he had luck when Brazil beat Argentina 3-0 in its second friendly under his command.

"That was a very good result. After the Germany failure, Dunga took charge and made Brazil fans happy," he said.
