Pep Guardiola has apologised for the row he created in the English football sphere earlier in the month after he declared the Queen’s land as his next coaching destination.

Guardiola amicably agreed to part ways with Bayern Munich at the end of the season by not renewing his three-year contract and the German club announced Carlo Ancelotti as his replacement.

His announcement to manage in one of any of the big EPL clubs caused an unsettling scare in the camp of many, speculations flew around that he possibly could replace Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City; Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United or Guus Hiddink, if he fails to impress at Chelsea.

An action labeled as a lack of “etiquette” by former England captain, Alain Shearer, in a British newspaper.

He publicly apologised to his colleagues on Tuesday in a chat with the media in Doha where Bayern Munich have been for a winter training camp, saying he was sorry for “disrespecting” them.

“I am sorry,” said Guardiola.

“Normally in my career as a trainer and as a player, I respect my colleagues a lot. So I am sorry. It wasn’t my intention.

“I will reveal my new club once I have actually signed a contract. I have not talked with the players about my imminent move to England. We are only talking about football. But they all already know anyway.”

However, the former Barcelona manager who was voted the second best coach of the year 2015 at the FIFA Awards gala on Monday did not refute his England interest but hinted that it could take up to two years before he resumes in England.

“Maybe it will be two years until I will coach a team in England.”
