Former Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri has passed his verdict on the future destination for Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

According to Claudio Ranieri, Pep Guardiola will “sooner or later” make his way to coach in Italy. At the moment, the Catalan boss has two more years on his agreement with Manchester City. 

If you did not know, Pep has always been ready to seize new prospects and challenges. That is exactly what he did at Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and now in England.  

With these things in mind, the ex-Chelsea and Leicester coach Ranieri believes that Guardiola will yet again look for something fresh. And this decision will lead him to Serie A, which is just a matter of time.

While talking with Gazzetta Dello Sport, he said: “We will be back, because I see signs of growth that cannot be obscured by the premature elimination of Italian teams.”

“A Serie A that sees the return of [Jose] Mourinho, of [Massimiliano] Allegri and perhaps also [Maurizio] Sarri, will certainly increase the visibility of our entire movement.”

“Too bad for [Antonio] Conte, who has left Inter, but I’m convinced Guardiola will sooner or later come to coach in Italy too.”

“There’s one thing we must do as soon as possible, however. We must increase the pace of the game. If we don’t do it, it’s difficult to be competitive.”
