Luiz Felipe Scolari resigns as coach of Gremio in Brazil

Former Brazil national team manager Luiz Felipe Scolari is out as Gremio coach.

SAO PAULO -- Luiz Felipe Scolari is resigning as Gremio's coach after a poor start in the Brazilian league.

The club said on Tuesday that Scolari asked to leave because he was unable to improve the team. Gremio opened with a 3-3 home draw against recently promoted Ponte Preta and then lost 2-0 at Coritiba.

Bayern boss Pep Guardiola has Brazil dream - Julio Sergio

Bayern boss Pep Guardiola says he is counting down to a well-earned rest at the end of the season after his title-winning team were beaten 2-1 by Freiburg.
The ESPN FC crew discuss whether Pep Guardiola inherited great teams in Barcelona and Bayern Munich or if his coaching was what led to their success.

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola dreams of taking over as Brazil coach in the future and would do so "without thinking," ex-Santos and Roma goalkeeper Julio Sergio has told ESPN.

Sergio, who worked with Guardiola at the Bundesliga champions earlier this year as he prepares to begin his own coaching career, said he had told him he would have liked to have led Brazil in last summer's World Cup -- and believes he would have won it.

Guardiola was linked with the position after Mano Menezes was dismissed...
