In his capacity as a member of the Management Board of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Organising Committee (LOC), iconic former striker and 1994 world champion Bebeto has given his support to new LOC chairman Jose Maria Marin.

“I was pleased to hear the vastly experienced Jose Maria Marin say that he would consult with us [Ronaldo and I] in making decisions," said Bebeto.

"We cannot stall or slow the rate of progress. Brazil wants everything to turn out right. We’re going to push on with our work and maintain unity within the LOC.”
