Guardiola urged to avoid Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Vicente del Bosque has urged Pep Guardiola to ignore the overtures of Chelsea and become the manager of Bayern Munich when he returns to football next year.

Guardiola has continued to be heavily linked with Chelsea despite Roberto di Matteo being handed the role on a two year permanent contract earlier this month.

Reports suggested that Di Matteo wanted a longer deal, however Chelsea were only originally willing to offer a one year contract before compromising with a 24 month offer.

Guardiola, who stepped down from his role at Barcelona citing exhaustion having established himself as the club’s most successful coach at the end of last season, could be heading to Stamford Bridge after he ends his self-imposed exile from the game next year.

However Chelsea face competition in landing their man with Bayern Munich also in the mix to name the former Barcelona midfielder as Jupp Heynckes replacement next year, and Del Bosque, currently overseeing Spain at Euro 2012, believes his countryman should head to Germany.

“It would be perfect for him, if he took over at Bayern this time next year. In fact, he could start tomorrow and make a great job of it.

'You listen to him speak English, and you can tell he has a flair for languages. That would be no problem. I would be very happy if he went to Bayern, and I am sure they would be, as well. They know he would convince the players of his ideas and make them successful.'
