Brazil deny Guardiola interest



Brazilian Football Confederation president Jose Maria Marin on Monday dismissed reports the five-time world champions are going to sign former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola to lead their 2014 World Cup campaign.

"There is a very little chance it will be a foreign coach. We have won five World Cups with Brazilian coaches and I don't think it will be necessary," Marin told the Terra website.

A source close to Guardiola said on Saturday that Brazil were the only team in the world that Guardiola was ready to coach after Mano Menezes was sacked on Friday following two and a half years in charge.

"The past is the past. We must now think about the future and it is the moment to analyse the ideal candidate who is going to lead a team that has picked up inconsistent results," added Marin.

During his time in charge, Menezes guided Brazil to just 21 wins in 40 matches, including the Olympic campaign where they lost to Mexico in the gold medal match.
