Manchester City’s Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini has reportedly rejected the role of the manager of the Brazilian national team that finished fourth in the recently concluded World Cup, according to the Daily Mirror.

Scolari sacking

This comes after the sacking of Luiz Felipe Scolari, following a dismal showing by Brazil which saw them get crushed by Germany 7-1 in the semi-final and then a lose to Netherlands 3-0 in the third-placed playoff. Such results were pointing towards the eviction of Scolari and that did not take too long, as the decision was taken by board in a meeting with Scolari on the evening of the third place match.

Pellegrini at City

Pellegrini seems to be having a time of his lifetime as he came into the limelight because of his immense success with City in his first year with the club. He led them to the Premier League title and the Capital One Cup.

It wasn’t just the titles, but the style of play, that saw them crush many of the big guns like Manchester United and Arsenal during their march towards domestic glory.

It's believed that Pellegrini's representatives made the Brazilian FA aware that the 60-year-old would honour his contract at the Etihad when the question was posed concerning his future, meaning that he will stay on and Brazil will need to look elsewhere.
