The return of Pep
8 January 2013
From the Guardian:
Pep Guardiola says that he will return to coaching next season but insists that he has not yet decided where. The former Barcelona coach has become the most sought-after manager in Europe, attracting interest from Chelsea and Manchester City among a number of other clubs, but is currently on a sabbatical in New York. Speaking at the Fifa Ballon d’Or awards in Zurich he confirmed for the first time that he will go back into management.
Given the managerial roundabout that is Chelsea, one wonders why anyone would want the job there. And as for City, if it’s money we’re talking about, why are PSG not mentioned too?
I think Pep’s smarter than this. My money is on Mourinho returning to Chelsea in the summer and, longer term, Guardiola being installed as Sir Alex Ferguson’s replacement at United.
