Guardiola refuses to rule out managing in Italy

Speaking to Sky in Italy, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has refused to rule out working in Italy at some point in the future.

The Catalan tactician led his team to a domestic treble in England last season, on top of the very convincing Premier League title from the previous campaign. Before coming to Manchester, he was in charge at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, and both those stints were extremely successful. He hasn’t worked in Italy yet, but as a player he spent a total of two years at Brescia and AS Roma.

City played against Atalanta in Italy in the Champions League on Tuesday, and Guardiola was subsequently asked about coming to manage there one day. His response was that he liked the country and his time there as a player, and he refused to rule the possibility out. At the moment, he is happy in England and his contract doesn’t expire before the end of next season, but after that, the possibility of the 48-year-old taking charge of a Serie A team is real.

Guardiola also denied contact from Juventus over the summer, which a number of outlets claimed to have happened.
