Chelsea, Man City options strengthened for Guardiola after Brazil snub

A move to the Premier League for Pep Guardiola has strengthened after he was blanked by Brazil.

The president of the Brazilian football federation says he is not likely to hire a foreign coach for the Brazil national team.

Despite reports that former Barcelona coach Guardiola is a candidate for the job, federation president Jose Maria Marin said Monday that he prefers a local name to replace Mano Menezes, who was fired last week.

Guardiola is a target for Chelsea and Manchester City.
