It’s just a thought. And it will never happen. But you heard it here first, just in case.
But, why shouldnâ€™t that happen? Brazil want to play like Barcelona. Barcelona based their game on the old Brazilian style of playing. Pep is out of a job and Mano is doing a crap job. There aren’t many good Brazilian coaches out there. Who are the options? Muricy? After the hiding he took against Pep last year? Luxemburgo? Walking PR disaster and negativity personified. Big Phil Scolari? Not the same coach he used to be at PalmeirasÂ and sureÂ wouldnâ€™t be the same coach he used to be for the seleÃ§Ã£o.
Pep GuardiolaÂ to Brazil makes sense to me. On the coaching front at least. But of course, could he or would he really want to deal with the CBF, fickle and demanding Brazilian media? What about the fans? I do not think they would warm to a foreigner at all. The struggle to warm to most Brazilian coaches.
But why wouldnâ€™t Brazil consider a foreign coach? Itâ€™s not a South American thing. Chile have Marcelo Bielsa, an Argentine. England have had their share of foreign coaches. Japan, Russia, Turkey. Is Brazil too good to have a foreign coach? Is Brazil to proud to have a foreign coach?
