Pep Guardiola turned down Brazil job, according to Catalan daily 'Sport'
Catalan daily newspaper "Sport" revealed on Friday that former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola turned down the chance to become head coach of Brazil this summer after he resigned as coach of the Spanish giants.
The newspaper reported that Guardiola, 41, received three proposals after leaving the Nou Camp, including one from the CBF, but did not accept any of them. The others were from AC Milan and Chelsea.
Guardiola is currently on a 1-year sabbatical in New York with his family but his representative is expected to fly to the United States in the next few days as they began to plan his return to football for the 2013/2014 season.
However, the same newspaper is reporting tonight that AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi and Vice President Adriano Galliani will look to meet with the Spaniard to discuss replacing current coach, Massimiliano Allegri, who has overseen a terrible start to the Serie A season for Milan.
Guardiola was Barcelona coach for four seasons, where he won 3 League titles and two Champions Leagues.
