Pep Guardiola Delivers Perfect Line After Being Asked About Links To England Job

Pep Guardiola Delivers Perfect Line After Being Asked About Links To England Job

The English FA are reportedly attempting an audacious bid to lure Pep Guardiola away from Bayern Munich once his contract expires at the end of the season. He's sure to be on every top club's radar but The Sun are reporting that England are planning to offer him a massive £10million-a-year to get him to make the switch to international football.

If you'd suggest that that seems rather unlikely, you may be right judging by Guardiola's reaction to the reports. Speaking at his weekly press conference today, the 44 year old was asked about his thoughts on taking over the England job. His response would suggest that he probably feels he'd be taking a step back in his career were he to take over from Roy Hodgson.

Oh come on, I’m coach of Bayern Munich. Many thanks and auf wiedersehen.

With that, he stood up and walked out like the disgracefully suave individual he is.

Guardiola's current contract with Bayern expires at the end of season and there has been plenty of speculation as to where the former Barca boss will end up. Man City have been touted for quite some time but with Pellegrini doing a rather decent job, Bayern chief executive, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, is confident he can get Guardiola to stick around at the Allianz Arena.

I am definitely optimistic that Pep will stay beyond June 30, 2016.

The coach feels good. He has a good team. It helps to have Munich as a city. There's a lot going for Pep Guardiola deciding for Bayern Munich.

Guardiola has long spoken of his intention to keep on the move during his managerial career but whether England would be able to entice him is another thing entirely. All in all, it's fair to say we're slightly sceptical.


One person who may be less amused with these reports is Roy Hodgson. The current England manager has been at odds with the FA ever since chief executive, Martin Glenn, stated his contract would not be renewed if England were to flop at the Euros. Hodgson, for his part, was less than delighted with that and further reiterated his desire to lead England to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Sorry Roy but if the FA can trick Guardiola to sign on the dotted line, you could probably win the Euros scoring 100 goals and conceding none and still be out of a job.


In slightly more realistic circumstances, Gary Neville and Alan Pardrew have been suggested as alternatives should Guardiola opt to decline the £10million-a-year offer.
