Pep Guardiola Returns To The World Football Stage As Bayern Munich Coach In '13-14
Published January 17, 2013
PEP SNUBS PREMIER LEAGUE: In London, Brian Lee reported Guardiola "has snubbed a move to the Premier League." Guardiola "has been linked with Manchester rivals United and City as well as European champions Chelsea since taking a break from the game at the end of last season." Guardiola "was the most sought-after coach in the business after creating arguably the best club side in the world of Catalonia" (DAILY MAIL, 1/16). The London EVENING STANDARD wrote "the news will disappoint Chelsea Owner Roman Abramovich, who had hoped to lure Guardiola to Stamford Bridge and was looking to offer a salary worth" £15M ($24M) a year to convince him to move to west London (EVENING STANDARD, 1/16).
