Views: 90

Munich, Jan 5 (IANS) Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola on Tuesday said he is leaving the German football club to manage an outfit in England.

The 44-year-old recently said that he would not have his Bayern deal extended which expires at the end of the season. He has been heavily linked with clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United.

“I want to experience a new city and I want to work in England. I have several offers from England but I haven’t signed anything yet,” Guardiola was quoted as saying by BBC.

“I have an opportunity to work in England. I’m at the right age and I feel it is the right move for me. That is the reason I have taken this decision.”

Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, a few days back, had suggested that Guardiola already knows where he is going next summer. But the coach chose to differ on Tuesday.

“I haven’t decided on a new club yet,” he said.
