Pep sorry for future announcement


Pep Guardiola has apologised for putting pressure on Premier League managers by stating his intention to move to England next season.

Guardiola announced he would be leaving Bayern Munich at the end of the season in December and last week revealed his next job would be in the Premier League.

The Spaniard's announcement that he has already had offers from England has led to a frenzy of speculation about where he will end up with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea all reported to be interested in landing the former Barcelona manager.

Speaking in the wake of Guardiola's announcement, City boss Manuel Pellegrini admitted that even winning the Premier League title might not be enough to keep him in his job, while Louis Van Gaal is under increasing pressure at Old Trafford following the club's early exit from the Champions League.

Having had a chance to reflect on his announcement, Guardiola has apologised for putting pressure on any manager.

"I am sorry. Normally, in my career as a trainer, as a player, I respect a lot my colleagues, so I am sorry. It wasn’t my intention," he said at Bayern Munich's training camp in Doha.

When asked about his future, Guardiola added: "I will reveal my new club once I have actually signed a contract."
