Pep Guardiola would be interested in managing Manchester United if such an opportunity presents itself according to his new book ‘Pep Confidential’.

The book was penned by Spanish journalist Marti Perarnau who is Guardiola’s close friend and it gives insights on the former Barcelona manager’s first season in charge of Bayern Munich.

43-year-old left the Catalan giants in 2012 having had an incredible four years at the club where he won 14 trophies before taking the Bayern job after a one-year sabbatical.

The conversations between Guardiola and his assistant Manel Estiarte as they watched Manchester United beat Schalke 4-1 in the Champions League a day after their own semi-final win over Real Madrid are detailed in Perarnau’s book.

“I like this atmosphere. I could see myself coaching here one day,” Guardiola reportedly said at Old Trafford.

He ended up taking the job in Munich in January 2013 having spurned the advances of Manchester City and Chelsea and United hired David Moyes at the end of that season after Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down having been at the helm for over 26 years.

“Pep liked the set-up at Sabener Strasse (Bayern’s training complex), despite the fact that it was smaller than Barca’s training ground and had fewer technical facilities.”

“Guardiola has always felt a deep admiration, almost veneration, for the legendary teams and players of Europe.”
