Pep Guardiola has announced that he will be leaving Manchester City after his contract expires in 2023 – and hopes to coach a national team instead of a Premier League should there be opportunity.
The 50-year-old, who joined City in 2016, plans to take a “rest” after seven years at the helm of the Premier League club.
“I think I will stop. I have to rest and see what we do,” said Guardiola.
“The next step is the national team if possible.”
At an online event hosted by Brazilian financial services company XP Investimentos and quoted by ESPN Brasil, he added, “I would like to train a South American (team), European, playing a Copa America, I want to have that experience.”
This might not be a welcoming news for Man. City FC management and fans as they lost the bid for England captain and striker of Tottenham Hotspurs.
Guardiola, has won three Premier League titles, an FA Cup and four successive League Cups with City.
