Former Barca manager eyes English role in the future.
Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola admits he would like to manage in England at some point in his career, according to Sky Sports.
The former Barcelona boss had been linked with a host of positions at Premier League clubs when he quit his post at the Nou Camp in 2012, and says that it is a proposition that he finds tempting.
Speaking ahead of his side’s clash with Chelsea in the European Super Cup, the 42-year-old added that he is not thinking about a move now, and that he hopes to be with current side Bayern for a long time.
“Before I finish my career, I would like to go to England as a trainer, but in a few years,” he said.
“I would like, first of all, to remain as long as possible at this club because it’s so important for the people in Munich, in Germany and all the way round the world.”
Guardiola earned the reputation as one of the best managers in the world with his work at Barcelona, where he won an incredible 14 trophies in just four years, including three league titles and two Champions League titles.
He goes into his first season at the Allianz Arena with the difficult task of carrying on the fine work of former boss Juup Heynckes, who won the treble with Bayern last season.
