Meanwhile, Guardiola has stated previously that taking charge of his homeland is ‘unlikely’. The 49-year-old’s contract at the Etihad expires next summer with questions remaining over his future.
Asked if Guardiola could ever take charge of a top-flight Brazilian side of the Brazil national team, Pere Guardiola told Globo Esporte: ‘Brazil has won everything with Brazilian coaches. I think you have good coaches, you don’t have to have only foreigners.
‘Pep has a dream of coaching a national team someday, but we’ll see how it goes; what will be the moment, if he will receive an offer.
‘It is not something for the present.’
For now Pep Guardiola’s focus is with Manchester City as they gear up for the Premier League’s restart later this month.
City sit second in the table 25 points behind league leaders Liverpool with nine matches remaining.
