Shocking! England Turned Down Pep Guardiola For England Post
This will come as a huge shock to most football fans as reliable sources just revealed that former Barcelona manager and now Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola actually showed interest for the vacant England position as at the time he was set to leave Barcelona.
Considering he can easily be voted the best manager in the world, many would have expected that any country would jump at any opportunity to have Pep as their national team coach but this was not the case for England as an English coach was the preferred choice as that time.
Sources say Guardiola was interested in talking to the FA when Fabio Capello resigned in February last year and an intermediary contacted the governing body to let them know.
He had decided to leave Barcelona at the end of the 2011-12 season but was not 100 per cent certain he would take a sabbatical.
It is understood a message was sent to Guardiola by the FA that the new man would need to be in place for Euro 2012, but the FA did not follow-up further with him.
The insider says the FA were contacted by representatives of multiple â€˜top managersâ€™ but only English candidates were considered seriously.
Well what do y’all think? is it their loss or did they make the right choice?
