Former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola has revealed that he is ready to manage in England, alerting Premier League giants Manchester City and Chelsea, the Daily Mail reports.

The Spaniard who stepped down as manager of Barcelona last summer to take a year out of management, spoke of his desire to coach in England publicly for the first time during a message of congratulations he sent to the FA for their 150th anniversary.

“As a player, I couldn’t realise my dream to play there,” said Guardiola.

“But I hope in the future I have a challenge to be a coach or a manager there and feel the experience of all the coaches and players that have been there”

“It is unique, to play in that league. I want to feel the supporters, the environment, the media and the style of the players.”

“I am still young, just 41, so I hope in the future I could train there and enjoy that. I have always found English football very fascinating. The support of the home team is amazing.”

Ever since his tenure at the Nou Camp came to an end, Guardiola has been the most sought after manager in the game, with a host of clubs including Manchester City and Chelsea believed to be interested.

It doesn’t come as a surprise after he lead Barcelona to 14 trophies in his four seasons in charge, building a team regarded by many as one of, if not the best team of all time.
