According to Lancenet, Guardiola would be willing to take over the Brazil team 'tomorrow'. A source said: "At 15:56 I received a call from Catalonia from someone close to Guardiola who told me that a dream we had in common, to see Pep as the Brazil coach, could become a reality."
It was also explained that, after the sacking of Menezes, the person called again: "Just minutes later we spoke again and they asked me if it was true that a new coach was going to be announced. I told them I wasn't sure. They then told me they were going to speak to Guardiola and call me back. This happened 13 minutes later and what they told me was much more relevant." Apparently the former Barça coach said: "The only team in the world I would begin coaching tomorrow is Brazil, with the chance of becoming world champions in Brazil."
"I told him if that statement was published it would cause a stir among the Brazilian Confederation and the media. They replied emphatically: "If Pep becomes coach of Brazil, they will be world champions. You can tell that to the president of CBF."
