Pep Guardiola Wants To Coach In England


Munich, Germany – Pep Guardiola announced back in December that he is to leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season and will be replaced by Carlo Ancelotti.

On Tuesday, Guardiola confirm his interest in coaching in the English Premier League. He has been linked to clubs such as Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

“I want to experience a new city and I want to work in England,” he said. “I have several offers from England but I haven’t signed anything yet.”

He added: “I have an opportunity to work in England. I think I’m at the right age and I feel it is the right move for me. That is the reason I have taken this decision.”

Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge had suggested Guardiola had already decided which club he would be joining next season, but at a news conference on Tuesday, the Spaniard said: “I haven’t decided on a new club yet.”

Former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti, 56, is taking over at the Bundesliga league leaders, with Guardiola describing the Italian as a “perfect choice”.
