Man City manager Pep Guardiola names the surprise career he would pick if he wasn't in football

Man City manager Pep Guardiola names the surprise career he would pick if he wasn't in football

The Spaniard would still be teaching.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed the surprise career he would choose if he didn't become a football manager.

The Spaniard is widely considered one of the greatest coaches to grace the Premier League, winning a historic treble with Manchester City last season.

He is on the hunt for his fourth consecutive Premier League title this term, having won five in total since taking charge at the Etihad.

Meanwhile, Guardiola is well known for creating the infamous 'tiki taka' style at Barcelona, where he won three La Liga titles and lifted the Champions League twice.

In truth, it is difficult to envisage not just the Premier League, but football as a whole without Guardiola. However, the 52-year-old has revealed what he would be if he never became a manager.

Speaking to the Premier League Youtube channel, Guardiola claimed that he would be a University Professor.

"I would be a Professor at a University about history," he said. "It would be my dream if I had not been a manger.

"Since Palaeolithic, Egyptian, Roman Empire, until now. So I will study everything. I love it."


Perhaps, the City boss can still achieve his dream, but he reckons he is still improving as a manager, admitting that he needed to "more patient" back in 2022.

He told Sky Sports: "I'm learning to be more patient, before I was too anxious, I was not a good manager. Now I'm better, I'm more patient."

He went on to say: "It (the process) is so difficult because it is unnatural based on who I am, but I have people close to me than help me to be more calm."

"To see things like sometimes I couldn't see it."
