Man City star fuels Guardiola-to-Eastlands rumours with revealing comments

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has admitted that it would be a pleasure to work under Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola at Eastlands.

The legendary Spanish manager has confirmed that he is leaving the German giants at the end of the season, with Carlo Ancelotti set to replace him with the Bavarian heavyweights.

Guardiola has confirmed that he’ll be heading to England next season, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City understood to be keen on acquiring the ex-Barcelona coach to solve their respective managerial uncertainties.

City appear to be favourites to sign the manager, and England international Hart has fuelled the rumours linking the Spaniard with a switch to the Etihad Stadium by admitting that it would be a pleasure to play under the Champions League-winning coach, as per the Mirror.

“I’m sure he [Guardiola] would be a pleasure to play under but right now I’m more than happy to play under Manuel [Pellegrini] and Roy [Hodgson].”

The stopper went on to reaffirm that he was content with life under the Chilean manager and not actively hoping for Guardiola’s arrival.

“We accept that you hear stuff that is so totally not true everyday about each other or other people or people you know, so, there’s a lot of stuff around football, that’s why it’s such a successful sport and such a big business.

“I’m happy under the manager I’m with at the moment for both club and country. I’m pleased to work for them. I’m glad that they’ve picked me as their goalkeeper so I’m happy as I am.”
