Pep Guardiola may be winning it all with Manchester City, but his career has historically shown that he is constantly looking for new challenges. One might be inching ever closer.
In a recent interview with Sky Sports Italy, the Spanish manager revealed that Italy might well be an option for him to consider in the future, since he isn’t that old.
“Training in Italy? Why not,” Guardiola said to Sky Sports in Italy.
‘Liverpool the strongest team in the world’ – Guardiola
“It was a pleasure [to be there] as a player, with the great (Carlo) Mazzone [former Brescia manager].
“I had a great time and I love the country but now I feel good in England, it’s a great championship. But maybe yes, I’m not that old.”
It was reported during the summer transfer window that talks were ongoing to bring Guardiola over to Serie A as the new manager of Juventus, but as it turned out, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss stayed put at City.
When the question was put to him about contact over a switch to Juve, Guardiola brushed it aside quickly.
“You had false information, you have to do your job better,” he said.
City play Liverpool this weekend, and need to win if they are to keep some pressure on the league leaders.
