Bayern Munich coach Guardiola admits Premier League ambitions

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola admits he'd like to move to the Premier League.

The former Barcelona boss was long courted by Chelsea and Manchester City among others during his year-long sabbatical following a hugely successful spell at the Nou Camp, but opted for the Bundesliga instead.

Guardiola said: "Chelsea has a super trainer. Bayern too. And I am happy to be here.

"I don't know if it's true, but I think Mourinho is happy to be there.

"I feel I am a young trainer, just 42 years old and just four years as a trainer in a professional world.

"Before I finish my career, sooner or later, I would like to go to England as a trainer, but in a few years.

"I would like to, first of all, remain as long as possible at this club because I've understood quickly how important this club is for the people, not only in Munich, in Germany and all around the world. I will try to do as best as possible.

"After that, I'd like to live this experience. But Chelsea have a good trainer now."
