Guardiola plans to leave Man City in 2023, looking for a national team job.


Rio de Janeiro:

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said on Wednesday that he intends to leave the English champions when his current contract expires in 2023 and hopes to finally take charge of the national team.

“After seven years on this team, I think I’ll take a break,” said Guardiola, 50.

“I need to look at what we have done and look at future stimuli.

“And in the process, I want to coach a national team: South American, European … I want to experience the Copa America.”

However, Guardiola is not banking on this national team because he is Brazil.

“The national team will be the next step,” Guardiola said at an online event hosted by Brazilian financial services company XP Investments, quoting ESPN Brazil.

“I think the Brazilian coach will always be Brazilian. I can’t see a foreigner coaching a team like Brazil.”

The former Barcelona player has won the Premier League title in three of his five seasons in charge of the city and last term took him to the Champions League final, where he lost 1-0 to Chelsea.

He has previously won the Champions League twice with Barcelona and La Liga three times with the Catalans and as many Bundesliga titles as Bayern Munich.

As a player, he also won the Old European Cup, the Cup Winners’ Cup and six La Liga titles with Barca.

However, he still has to manage the national team, or win a trophy at the international level.

Former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Nobel Peace Prize-winning Pakistani rights activist Malala Yousafzai were also featured in Wednesday’s online program.
