Scolari takes over at Gremio

Luiz Felipe Scolari is back in football as coach of Brazilian top flight side Gremio.

Scolari, who resigned as Brazil coach after the World Cup hosts could only finish fourth in this summer's competition, takes over at a team who are in mid-table in Brazi's Campeonato.

It will be the 65-year-old's third stint in charge of the Porto Alegre-based side, having led them in 1987, then from 1993 until 1996, which was the last time they won the title.
