Former Barca boss can ‘see himself’ at Old Trafford.
Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola is supposedly open to the idea of managing Manchester United one day in the future, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The Spanish tactician is quoted as having expressed his desire to coach United a few years ago, whilst still in charge of Barcelona, admitting that he was in awe of the atmosphere at Old Trafford.
Guardiola was in the stands scouting United ahead of their meeting in the 2011 Champions League final, which Guardiola’s Barca side won 3-1, though he eventually left the Catalan giants to manage Bayern Munich after taking a year out of the game.
Guardiola reportedly said to his assistant: “I like this atmosphere. I could see myself coaching here one day.”
It seems unlikely that the 43-year-old will leave the Allianz Arena anytime soon, while United themselves only appointed a new manager this summer, as Louis van Gaal took over from David Moyes in the bid to be the successor to the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson.
Guardiola is widely regarded as one of the finest managers in the world, however, and would surely be welcome at the Red Devils in the future if the club had a position available for him, though many top clubs would likely be after him after his tremendous success in his career so far.
