RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Internacional officially presented Dorival Junrior as the head coach on Tuesday.

The coach was recently fired from Atletico-MG and was quickly sought out by the presidency of Internacional. Junior signed a contract for the remainder of the 2011 season.

With 16 rounds played out of the 38 rounds of the Brazilian Championship, Internacional currently stands in seventh place with 23 points.

At the welcome conference, the newly signed head coach believed that Internacional has all the ingredients to battle for the highly coveted title of the Brazilian Championship. He's confident that he will be able to improve the team's ranking and help it finish among the top four at the end of the season, earning a spot in the 2012 Libertadores Cup.

Junior will lead Internacional into his first match on August 17 at home against Botafogo in the 17th round of the Brazilian Championship.
