Brazil rule out Guardiola move

CBF president Jose Marin insists the next coach of the national team will be Brazilian, dismissing former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola as a potential replacement for Mano Menezes.

Guardiola, who has also been linked with the likes of Manchester City and AC Milan, was touted as a top candidate following Menezes' sacking last Friday. However, Marin wants to see a compatriot guide the Selecao to World Cup glory.

"I find it hard [to believe] that Brazil's next coach will be a foreign," he told Terra. "I have the greatest respect for Guardiola, but Brazil has won all of its five World Cups with Brazilian coaches.

"I haven't talk to any [possible coaches] yet. I'm waiting for the end of Brasileirao. A decision might be made in January, in which case I will talk to reporters in a press conference and announce the new coach.

"The next coach must have an adequate profile to lead Brazil to its top goal, which is winning the 2014 World Cup."

Meanwhile, CBF director Andres Sanchez believes that former Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari will take the job.

"I haven't spoke with the president [Marin] yet, but there's a possibility that I'll leave [the board]," he said. "As far as I know, Felipao has agreed terms. I know from credible sources that this happened.

"I'm sad because of all that happened. Do you think that I wanted to be here, explaining the dismissal of our coach? We're going through a moment of insecurity, we don't have a coach. There's absolutely nothing that can shake Brazilian football."
