Bayern Munich coach, Pep Guardiola has confirmed he is leaving the club at the end of the season because he wants to manage in England.
The former Barcelona coach has chosen not to extend his contract with the Bundesliga champions and will leave at the end of this season.

“I haven’t decided on a new club yet.
“I’m very happy and grateful to Bayern for the trust they’ve shown in me but I need a new challenge”, he added.
Carlo Ancelotti has already been confirmed as Bayern’s next manager, while Guardiola is strongly tipped to replace Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City.
