Pep ready for Premier League |  MUNDIAL MORNINGS

WEDNESDAY 06 JANUARY 2016

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola has stated that he wants
to leave Germany for the Premier League.

The young manager has been awarded with a long list of
accolades, and has won almost every major trophy possible for Bayern Munich and
his former club FC Barcelona.

Guardiola explained the reasoning behind his decision to
leave in a press conference this week.

“The reason I have not extended my contract is simple:
I want to manage in the Premier League,” Guardiola said.

“I think I am young enough. I need a new challenge. My
career is a long way from over.

"I have some offers from the Premier League, but I have
not committed myself yet. I am very grateful to Bayern for the trust they’ve
shown in me.

"When I have a new club, the club will communicate
that. At the moment, I can’t say anything else because nothing is fixed.”

Sky
Bet have Guardiola as a ¼ favourite to join Manchester City, whereas on the
other side of Manchester he is backed at 12/1 to replace Manchester United’s Louis
van Gaal.

 AUBAMEYANG TO LEAVE DORTMUND?

As we roll into January the transfer speculation for in-form players accumulates
like wild fire.

This is no different for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who has
been in career high form for Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season.

Aubameyang added fuel to the fire after missing training
following the Winter Break.

The forwards has scored 22 goals for the season which has
contributed to Dortmund’s 2nd position on the table.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool are all rumoured to
be interested in the striker.

 SUAREZ TO WATFORD

He may not be the Suarez you were thinking of, but
Fiorentina’s Mario Suarez is in advanced talks to sign with Watford.

The Spaniard played for Atletico Madrid in 2013/14 when they
won the La Liga and made the Champions League final.

As a youngster he worked under current Hornets boss Quique
Sanchez Flores.

LIVERPOOL LEAGUE CUP VICTORY

Liverpool are edging closer to their first Cup final since
2012 after defeating Stoke 1-0 in the League Cup Semi-final first leg.

The Reds finished the game with more headaches than they
started with, losing Philippe Coutinho and Dejan
Lovren to injury.
