there's a case for tite as boss.

CASEMIRO has thrown his full support behind Brazil coach Tite ahead of tonight's Copa America final.

Tite's position is under threat amid suggestions the 58-year-old's threeyear reign will come to an end following the tournament on home soil.

The Brazil Football Confederation insist that Tite won't be shown the door and have given him a vote of confidence ahead of the Maracana final.

But with rumours over Tite's future refusing to go away, Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro is hoping the national boss stays put and doesn't bow out.

"He has won a lot of national and international titles, and he is a victor," said Casemiro.

"He's a coach who has been in the position for three years and has won more than 80 per cent.

"Tite is in our heads to be mentally strong, not to destabilise us.

"He has a great success in this, to make the team concentrate and not to fall in the trap of the opponents, to let them provoke us, so people do not fall for it."
