Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola could relish the chance to manage the Brazil national team, according to Domenec Torrent, the coach’s former assistant.
Torrent, who worked with Guardiola at Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Man City, feels the Spaniard can be a perfect fit for the Selecao and can improve them immensely.
The Catalan has tasted success in the countries he has managed and is regarded as one of the best managers in recent history.
He has not managed a national team before, but could be interested in the future.
“Pep could manage the Brazil team perfectly – and I am convinced he would improve it,” Torrent, who has worked alongside Guardiola at Barca, Bayern and City, told Globoesporte.
“If Pep is good at one thing, it is improving his teams.
“He is interested in any top job related to football because he also knows that without good players you can achieve nothing.
“Pep has a special feeling for Brazilian players. He has worked with Brazilians at Barcelona, Bayern and City.
“In fact, he has a preference for Brazilians because they are very versatile and can adapt to any type of football.”
The 49-year-old has in the past been linked with the Brazil job, with former Barcelona defender Dani Alves claiming the former player at some point expressed interest in taking the job.
