Pep Dreams Of EPL

Pep Guardiola says that he hopes to manage in the English Premier League in the future, likely sending Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich into a swoon, and also putting both Manchester clubs on red alert.

The football world is waiting to see where Guardiola will drop anchor after his sabbatical.

The former Barcelona boss has been linked to various posts, including the manager’s job at Bayern Munich, and even briefly the coach’s position for Brazil.

But now it seems as if the Premier League is Pep’s next port of call, after the classy Catalan craftsman claimed that the English top-flight is “fascinating” and “amazing” to him.

"I've always found English football very fascinating, for the environment, the crowd and the supporters," Guardiola said at the FA’s 150th anniversary celebration.

"In Italy, Latin people will support you when you 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.

"As a player, I couldn't realise my dream to play there. But I hope in the future I have a challenge to be a coach or a manager there and feel the experience of all the coaches and players that have been there.

"It is unique, to play in that league. The support is amazing. 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."

With clubs like AC Milan, PSG and more all adding their names to Pep’s list of suitors, Guardiola is certainly heading into his next job from a position of strength.

But it seems it will be England’s top dogs who do battle to snare the most coveted signature currently going in football.
