Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has apologised to his counterparts in the Premier League after recently stating that he would like to manage in England when he leaves the German club in the summer. Guardiola’s contract with Bayern comes to an end in the summer and he has announced that he will not be extending the deal.
The former Barcelona manager even went as far as saying that he would like his next destination to be in England. There are a number of top Premier League clubs who have courted him for a long time and this statement has increased speculation that he would be joining a United, Manchester City, or Chelsea.
United have not been performing satisfactorily under Louis van Gaal and there is growing pressure from the fans to sack the Dutchman. Manchester City have been a very inconsistent under the regime of Manuel Pellegrini. It looks like they will miss out on the league title yet again.
The Chilean won the league title in his first season, but since then, he has been unable to motivate the team to greater heights. Chelsea recently parted company with Jose Mourinho and have appointed Guus Hiddink on an interim basis, which suggests that they are open to the possibility of a permanent manager.
In an interview Guardiola said he was sorry. “I am sorry. Normally in my career as a trainer and as a player, I respect my colleagues a lot. So I am sorry. It wasn’t my intention. I will reveal my new club once I have actually signed a contract.”
The Spaniard is one of the respected coaches across the world having won numerous titles with Bayern Munich and Barcelona. However, he is best known for his time with the Spanish club, who won the Champions League twice under his regime. Guardiola came to Bayern almost 3 years ago.
