LONDON (AP) — Pep Guardiola says he wants to manage in England, an encouraging signal to the string of Premier League clubs constantly linked with the manager.

Guardiola is on a one-season break since leaving Barcelona last May after four successful seasons, and English teams likely would be extremely interested in signing him.

Guardiola says "as a player, I couldn't realize my dream to play there. But I hope in the future, I have a challenge to be a coach or a manager there."

In an interview to be shown Wednesday at the launch of celebrations marking the English Football Association's 150th anniversary, Guardiola says he's "always found English football very fascinating."
