In his first experience in Timão in 2004/2005, Tite led Corinthians in 51 matches, with 24 victories, 15 draws and 12 defeats. 62 goals scored and 44 goals allowed. When he came back to Alvinegro, in the end of 2012, he changed his playing method, creating one group without vanity and stars, in which each player should fight for his own space in the team by merit and hard work. In 2011, he was runner-up in the Paulista and Brazilian Championships. In the following year he won the Libertadores for the first time in the Club´s history.
