Flamengo have parted company with Paulo Sousa just six months after appointing him as head coach.
Sousa jumped ship from his role as Poland boss to take over at Flamengo at the end of last year.
The former Portugal midfielder signed a two-year deal, but has been relieved of his duties following back-to-back Serie A defeats for the Rio de Janeiro giants
Flamengo are languishing in 14th place after they were beaten 1-0 by Bragantino on Thursday, a loss that came following a 2-1 defeat to Fortaleza.
Polish FA president Cezary Kulesza accused Sousa of being "disrespectful" after he left his role as Poland head coach to move to Brazil.
Sousa had been in charge of Bordeaux before taking the Poland job.
