Ronaldo: I see no problem with a foreign coach of the Seleção
Brazil striking legend Ronaldo believes that the CBF should choose the best coach available to take over from the recently sacked Mano Menezes, even if it means employing a foreign coach.
Ronaldo, 36, was a teammate at Barcelona of Pep Guardiola, who has been strongly linked with the job, and is of the opinion that if the CBF decides that the Spanish coach is the best, then they should hire him.
"Just as many Brazilians have gone abroad and had success, I see no problem with a foreign coach coming to take over the squad," said the former Real Madrid striker to SporTV.
"But the board of the CBF need to see if this is the best way. It is a decision that needs to be taken with great tranquility. Let's take our time to make the best choice."
And Ronaldo did not agree with the decision to axe Menezes and believed the former coach was finally getting things right.
"I was surprised. In my opinion, the Seleção was improving the level of play, showing togetherness and, suddenly, came the change.
"This is not good this climate of instability, uncertainty. We need tranquility to find our best football as soon as possible. The fans feel that instability and pass it to the players," he added.
