Respected Spaniard Coach Pep Guardiola has finally opened up on his craving to take a job up in the Premier League once he completes his current assignment in Germany with Bayern Munich.
Guardiola last month announced that he that he would not be renewing his contract with the Bavarians with Carlo Ancelotti already contacted to replace him at the Allianz Arena.
There have been debates on the best possible destination for Guardiola although Premier League clubs Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are thought to be front-runners in the race for the two-time Champions League winner.
Guardiola insists that he has not yet decided on which club he will join, but stressed that his desire is to manage in England next.
“The reason I have not extended my contract is simple. I want to manage in the Premier League,” he told reporters.
“I haven’t decided on a new club yet. I think I am young enough. I need a new challenge. My career is a long way from over. When I have a new club, the club will communicate that. At the moment, I can’t say anything else because nothing is fixed.
“With a Champions League win, my time here [at Bayern] is complete. I have several offers from England, but I haven’t signed anything yet. I want to experience a new city and I want to work in England. That is the reason I have taken this decision.”
Guardiola has won two league titles and the DFB-Pokal during his time at Bayern so far.
