Pep Guardiola wants an international job one day
Pep Guardiola believes that sooner or later he will take a step in international governance.
Guardiola led Manchester City to the Premier League title last season, ending with a record score of 100 points.
The 47-year-old former coach of Barcelona and Bavaria in Munich was the keynote speaker at the annual Pirs lecture in the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures at the University of Liverpool on Wednesday afternoon.
During the large-scale discussion, which included his views on politics, culture and poetry, as well as on sports, the city head was asked whether there was something that he had not yet achieved or achieved, for example, international football.
Guardiola, who led the City at the beginning of the 2016–1917 season, replied: “I would like to be an international manager in the national team.
“Sooner or later this will happen, because every three days I would like to participate, but a little more calmly, to play more golf … now I don’t have time to play.

“So yes, sooner or later it will happen if I have a chance, and some international team wants to knock (at my door).” We'll see."
Guardiola also achieved success in Barcelona, twice winning the Champions League, and in Germany – three consecutive Bundesliga titles for Bavaria.
Answering the question of students of modern languages about their views on how the Premier League assessed other domestic competitions, Guardiola believed that the best flight of England was "the most unpredictable."
“This is the most difficult game, depending on the number of games, for the weather and the judges who say:“ Play, play, play (on) ”and“ competitors ”, there are a lot of them. This is the only country where five or six (teams) can win the Premier League, ”said Guardiola.
“I think it would be unfair to say (best of all in general). There are many things in Germany that are better than here, in Spain there are things that are better than here, and there are things that are better than other leagues.
“This is the same as with culture, when you travel, you learn a lot.
“I am a better manager than in Germany, and now I’m a better manager than in Barcelona, just to be there.
“Now I feel here, I am also the best manager, because I learned to cope with this incredible league in many circumstances.
“This is an unpredictable league, I think I was the most unpredictable, with stadiums and passion. When you see the match of the day, after the highlights and all the people, when one team scores a goal, the reactions of the crowd are crazy. People laugh, shout and hug, that's good.
"We work, everyone around the world is watching us, and this is fantastic."
This season, the city looks good again, and it will resume the Premier League. Two points are clearly marked at the top of the table before going to West Ham.
Despite all the applause given to his team on a free account, which defeated Manchester United rivals 3: 1 before the international break for the seventh straight victories in all competitions, Guardiola will keep in perspective.
Asked about the football media in different countries where he managed, the city’s boss said: “It’s the same everywhere — when you win, you are a genius, when you lose you, it’s a disaster.”
