The former Barcelona boss revealed his next ambition is to take charge of a national team.
“Next step will be a national team, if there is a possibility,” he said at an XP Investimentos event on Wednesday.

“And in the process, I would like to coach a South American (team), European, playing a Copa America, I want to have that experience.”
Guardiola took a 12-month break following his departure from Barcelona in 2012 after four years at the Nou Camp, and joined Bayern Munich in 2013.
His comments come on the day City’s pursuit of Harry Kane ended, with the England captain confirming he would be staying at Tottenham this summer.
