If Brazil plays as in the Confederations Cup with the same aggressiveness and the same team play, they will be very dangerous in the World Cup. I’ll tell you something: it’s been years that I think of leading a team in Brazil. I would like to one day lead a Brazilian team. It’s amazing the talents of players there, the style of football, full stadiums. Yes, one day I’d like to coach in Brazil,” he suggested.
