In fractal performance, after fooling around, reporting some news:

Luxemburgo says no to Barça

Brazilian national coach Wanderley Luxemburgo has admitted that he received an offer last week to become Louis van Gaal’s successor as Barçelona coach, but has turned down the offer.

Luxemburgo said Barcelona sounded him out when he paid a trip to the city while he was in Europe for his side’s friendlies against Wales and England.

“I received an offer, but all I’m interested in at the moment is Brazil’s qualification for the World Cup Finals,” reported the website “Marca” on Saturday.

Luxemburgo, whose contract runs until after the 2002 World Cup, is sure to have received an offer well in excess of the current 130 million peseta (€ 780,000) annual salary he receives from the Brazilian Football Federation.

“I’m not worried about money at present,” the former Corinthians coach added.

Barcelona’s interest in Luxemburgo comes as no surprise as the coach’s good relationship with his compatriot, the club’s temperamental star Rivaldo, could quell the transfer speculation of his impending departure to Lazio.

Several of the candidates for the club’s presidential elections to be held in July to succeed the outgoing Josep Lluís Nuñez had stated their preference for the Brazilian coach who they feel could galvanise Rivaldo into a return to his best form.

Following Luxemburgo’s refusal to take the Barça hotseat - former Barcelona star, Ronald Koeman is being tipped as the likely successor to Louis van Gaal.

Alexx,
the funny thing is that they say rivaldo is "temperamental". The thing is that he is not stupid.....something that Van Gall is :)
