Rio de Janeiro - New Brazil coach Dunga has cited Nelson Mandela as an inspiration on taking the reins of the national side for a second time Tuesday.
"Nelson Mandela had everything against him. He did not have a weapon and yet brought about change.
"I hope to have (even) one percent of his patience. I am not thinking about me but about the team.
"If the team is doing well then I'm happy," said Dunga, previously in charge from 2006 to 2010 but sacked after that year's World Cup in South Africa after a quarter-final exit to the Dutch.
