Bundesliga expert: Pep Guardiola wants to replace Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger
Bundesliga expert Jan Aage Fjortoft claims Pep Guardiola wants the Arsenal job when Arsene Wenger retires
Pep Guardiola wants to succeed Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger at The Emirates, according to Bundesliga expert Jan Aage Fjortoft.
The Bayern Munich head coach’s future has been a source of relentless speculation this week after it was reported that Guardiola will leave the Bundesliga champions at the end of the 2015/16 campaign.
Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are all thought to be interested in the former Barcelona manager’s services, with the Citizens reported to be leading the race to appoint Guardiola as Manuel Pellegrini’s replacement.
However, German football expert Fjortoft took to Twitter to claim that Guardiola has his eye on Wenger’s role at Emirates Stadium, although the former Middlesbrough midfielder questioned when the Frenchman would eventually retire as Gunners manager.
Pep wants to be the new Arsenal-manager apparently. Will wait till Wenger retires. So Pep will be 63 when he takes over at Arsenal..

Earlier this week, outspoken Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan urged his fellow fans to stop dreaming about Guardiola’s potential appointment, insisting that the north Londoners would never land the three-time Champions League-winning manager.
GOOD NEWS: Pep Guardiola about to become available. BAD NEWS: Zero chance of Arsenal hiring him.

The former Barcelona midfielder has been in charge of Bayern since 2013.
