Ex-Barcelona coach Valverde: Premier League? I'd rather go to Australia

Former Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde admits he's not tempted by a move to England.

Valverde was sacked by Barca over the New Year and replaced by Quique Setien.

He said, "People ask me sometimes 'How about the Premier League?' and I say 'Well actually I'd like to go to Australia.

"A career in football does not last forever and sometimes you think you have to take the opportunity to live in strange places.

"It's possible I'd go somewhere abroad. The truth is I like to do strange things so I wouldn't rule it out."
