Sebastião Barroso Lazaroni,[1] commonly known as Sebastião Lazaroni (born September 25, 1950[1]), is a Brazilian football (soccer) manager who most recently worked for Qatar Sports Club. He was born in Muriaé, Minas Gerais state.[1]

He is well known in Brazil as the manager who tried to introduce the libero position in Brazilian football.[2] He used the 3-5-2 scheme during the 1990 FIFA World Cup, but it was a failure, and Brazil was eliminated in the second round by Argentina.[2]

When he was the Brazil national team head coach, in 35 matches, he won 21, drew seven and lost seven.[2]

He is also known for his being the head coach of Turkish club Fenerbahçe that ended the 40-year undefeated European home record of Manchester United in the European Champions' League match in 1996.[3]

He took over the Qatar national team on August 1, 2011 as a replacement for Milovan Rajevac, but was ultimately fired four months later as a result of the team's unimpressive performances. The QFA highlighted his failure to advance past the group stage of the 2011 Pan Arab Games, which Qatar had hosted, as a main cause of his sacking. His record with the team ended with two wins, five draws and two losses.[4] He was officially sacked on January 3, 2012 after his contract was released by QFA.
