Pep wanted Brazil job….


Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola wanted to coach Brazil at last year’s World Cup, says defender Dani Alves. The Barcelona full-back said his former boss at the Nou Camp had a plan to make the hosts world champions again. But Alves claimed Brazilian football officials were afraid of hiring a foreign coach for the national side. “Pep said he wanted to make Brazil a World Cup champion and had an entire strategy to make us a world champion,” the 32-year-old told ESPN Brasil. “They didn’t want it, because they said that they didn’t know if Brazil would accept a foreign coach.”
