Guardiola wants to manage in England


Pep Guardiola wants to manage in the Premier League but insists he does not have a job lined up in England.

Guardiola announced in December that he will leave Bayern Munich when his contract expires at the end of the season with the Spaniard keen on a new challenge.

There has been widespread speculation that his next job would be in England with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea all linked with the 44-year-old.

Explaining his decision for turning down a new offer at Bayern, Guardiola told a news conference: "The reason I have not extended my contract is simple. I want to manage in the Premier League.

"I haven't decided on a new club yet.

"I'm very happy and grateful to Bayern for the trust they've shown in me but I need a new challenge.

City would appear to be the favourites to land the manager but he insists he had not reached an agreement with any club.

"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," he added.

"I want to experience a new city and I want to work in England. I have several offers from England but I haven't signed anything yet.”
