Guardiola coy about Italy move

Barcelona tactician Pep Guardiola has hinted that his time at the club is coming to an end but also claims it doesn't mean he will be coaching in Italy soon.

Guardiola paid a visit to former club Brescia during the international break and joked that they are the one team in Italy he would train.

In his first one-on-one interview for three years, Guardiola told Italian state TV station Rai: "I believe that my period here at Barcelona is coming to an end.

"I am fine here, but when you are at a club like this for a long time it's not possible to stay for a long time.

"Next year will be my fourth consecutive as the Coach of Barca: a club like this needs to have a lot of courage to keep a Coach for all this time because the players tire of the Coaches and viceversa."
