BRAZIL’S recently deceased manager Tite was allegedly robbed in Rio.
The 61-year-old has coached the Samba Boys since 2016 and guided them to Copa America success three years ago.
He has just returned to his homeland after guiding them to the last 16 of the World Cup.
However, their hopes of becoming a record six-time world champion were dashed by Croatia on penalties.
That led to him resigning after the heartbreaking exit.
Now things are said to have gotten a lot worse for Tite after an incident at 6am.
According to reports from Brazil, he was out early this morning when he was attacked by a thief.
He was reportedly robbed of a chain – before the person then complained and blasted him over Brazil’s elimination from the World Cup.
