Former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola wants to manage in England

Former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola says he wants to manage in England. He is looking for a new job.

The 41-year-old manager said: «As a player I couldn’t realise my dream to play there in England. But I hope in the future, I have a challenge to be a coach or a manager there.»

It comes after Jose Mourinho expressed his desire to return to England  when his time at Real Madrid comes to an end.

Guardiola added: «It is unique, to play in that league. I want to feel the supporters, the environment, the media and the style of the players and everything. I am still young, just 41, so I hope in the future I could be able to train there and enjoy that. I’ve always found English football very fascinating, just for the environment, the crowd and the supporters. The support of the home team is amazing. In Italy, Latin people will support you when they are playing and when you lose, they kill you. In England, I’m always surprised that people always support everything and that is nice. That’s why, maybe, I hope to have the challenge or the opportunity to train there.»

Guardiola is currently living in New York with his family after deciding to take a one-year sabbatical from football. But, speaking at Fifa’s Ballon D’Or ceremony earlier in January, he confirmed that he would return to management for the 2013-14 season.
