Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said, instead of accepting an offer to coach Manchester United or Real Madrid in the future, he would rather retire to the golf course.
Pep made this statement, considering the fact that he will be facing Ole Gunnar’s Solskjaer’s team in a Carabao Cup semi-final on Tuesday night aiming to win the trophy for a third successive year.
He could have been in the opposing dugout had former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson convinced the former Barcelona boss to take over at Old Trafford, but Guardiola says there is no longer any chance of him joining the Red Devils in the future.
In his words, he said, “After training City I won’t train United,” he said ahead of the first leg at Old Trafford. “It is like I would never train Madrid. Definitely not.”
He was also asked if it was the only job available and replied: “I’d be in the Maldives if I don’t have any offers! Maybe not the Maldives because it doesn’t have any golf courses!”
The United position remains filled despite Solskjaer’s side languishing five points outside the Champions League places in the Premier League.
