Former Barcelona defender Miguel Ángel Nadal believes Pep Guardiola would suit Brazil
Former Barcelona defender, and 'Dream Team' member, Miguel Ángel Nadal believes that Pep Guardiola would be a success if he was to become the Seleção manager as the Brazilian style would suit the coach's style of play.
Nadal, 46, who played alongside Guardiola at the Nou Camp, told Lancenet that he was "taken aback" with the news published by LANCE! that the coach would be willing to end his sabbatical in New York to coach the Brazilian national team. However, 'The Beast' said that he could see a "perfect union" if it was to happen.
He said: "I have no information about it. It was a surprise. But I think it would be good. Brazil has great players, a style of play that works the ball with skill, like that kind of football. That's exactly what Pep worked with in Barcelona. So, I think it would be interesting."
Nadal was asked about any possible difficulties that Guardiola would face in managing Brazil, but he preferred to talk about the positives of taking the role.
"They have lots of quality players ... Brazil will always be well served, renewal is constant. You have to prepare and assemble a team, because raw material is there."
