Guardiola Thinking of International Management

Guardiola Thinking of International Management

Pep Guardiola feels he will make the step into international management "sooner or later".Guardiola guided Manchester City to the Premier League title last season, finishing with a record 100 points.

The 47-year-old former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach was the keynote speaker in the Peers Annual Lecture at Liverpool University's Department of Modern Languages and Cultures yesterday.

During a wide-ranging discussion - which included his views on politics, culture and poetry, as well as sport - the City boss was asked if there was anything as a manager he had not yet achieved and aspired to, such as international football.

Guardiola, who took charge of City at the start of the 2016-17 season, replied: "I would like to be an international manager in a national team.

"Sooner or later, it will happen because every three days I would like to be involved, but a little bit more calm, play more golf... now I do not have time to play.

"So yes, sooner or later it is going to happen, if I have a chance and some international team wants to come 'knock, knock' (at my door). We will see."

When replying to a question on the football media in the different countries where he has managed, the City boss said: "Everywhere it happens the same - when you win you are a genius, when you lose you are a disaster."
