Guardiola keen on coaching job in England



Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola on Wednesday followed Jose Mourinho in expressing an interest in possibly coaching in England at some point.

Guardiola is taking a sabbatical in New York after four years with Barcelona and has been strongly linked with Bayern Munich, AC Milan and Premier League clubs.

Speaking in a video message for the Football Association's 150th anniversary celebrations, he said he would be keen to work in the richest league in the world.

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

"It is unique, to play in that league. I want to feel the supporters, the environment, the media and the style of the players. I have always found English football fascinating. 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 support everything. That is nice and why, maybe, as I am still young, just 41, I hope to have the challenge or the opportunity to train there."

Guardiola coached Barcelona to 14 titles - including two Champions Leagues and World Club Cups each, and three Liga titles - during his four-year tenure at the Nou Camp between 2008 and 2012.

Former Chelsea manager Mourinho, currently in charge at Real Madrid, has also said he is keen on coaching in England again in the future.
