Pep Guardiola fancies crack at international football after Man City as he leaves door open to England job | The Sun
PEP GUARDIOLA previously gave a tantalising hint that he may one day like to fill Gareth Southgate’s boots as England boss
Guardiola has long admitted the idea of becoming a national boss some time in the future does appeal.
His team Manchester City are facing more than 100 allegations of breaches of financial rules following a four-year investigation.
And the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss did previously claim he would quit the Cityzens if club chiefs ever lied to him regarding rule breaches.
And when the day he eventually leaves does arrive, the Three Lions job would hold more appeal than most for the successful Etihad boss.
Guardiola is currently under contract at City until 2025.

Meanwhile, Southgate signed an extension until 2024 as England gaffer as has confirmed he will stay on until next year's European Championship.
Speaking back in 2021, the 52-year-old Spaniard said: “Gareth is doing an incredible job and has just signed a new contract, so congratulations.
“But when I finish here, it would be a pleasure to live a World Cup or Euros. I would like that but normally it is not easy because there are so few positions.
“I would like it to happen but if it doesn’t I will train a club. And in England, always I will be Man City.

“I don’t think I will train another club here apart from this one.
“As long as my energy and love for what I am doing is here, then I don’t know what’s going to happen.
“Years ago, I never thought I would be the Manchester City trainer and that I would be here for six seasons. Never.
“So life dictates your future and we will see what happens.”
Following the fresh charges, possible punishments for City include a points deduction or even expulsion from the Premier League.
It comes after Uefa previously slapped City with a two-year ban and fined the club £25million in February 2020 for alleged financial fair play breaches.
Five months later, that ban was overturned and the fine was cut to £9m by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
