Rio de Janeiro: Three-time FIFA World Player of the Year Ronaldo believes that last November's sacking of national coach Mano Menezes has set Brazil back in its preparations for the next year's World Cup.

Menezes was dismissed in November last year, just days after leading Brazil to the Superclassic of the Americas trophy with a dramatic penalty shootout victory over Argentina in Buenos Aires, Xinha reports.

He was replaced in December by 64-year-old Luiz Felipe Scolari, under whom Ronaldo played in Brazil's 2002 World Cup-winning team in Japan and South Korea.
