MANCHESTER City manager Manuel Pellegrini is convinced Pep Guardiola will coach in the Premier League as speculation continues that the outgoing Bayern Munich boss could replace Pellegrini at the Etihad Stadium.

Guardiola is sure to be courted by a host of top clubs across Europe after it was announced on Sunday that he will be leaving Bayern at the end of the season, with the German champions already having lined up Carlo Ancelotti as his successor.

Chilean boss Pellegrini has no doubts that Guardiola will work in England at some stage and admits there is a possibility he could be a future City boss, with Chelsea and Manchester United also reported to be possible destinations for the former Barcelona coach.

“Pep Guardiola will work here (in England), I don’t know if it is next season here (at City) or at another club. Some day he’ll come here,” he said in quotes reported by several national newspapers yesterday.

“And I hope he will have the option to work at Manchester City. I say that because I love this club and I hope, in the future, he can work here also. I am sure he will be very important for the club.”

Pellegrini still has 18 months left on his current City contract, with the team going well at home and in Europe. But he is experienced enough to know that the landscape can change very quickly, irrespective of the contract a manager is on.
