English Premier League champions Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been invited by the Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Company (MMPRC) for a round of golf in the Maldives.
The Spaniard had stated in a news conference yesterday before the clash with rivals Manchester United in the Carabao Cup win, that he would rather spend his days in the Maldives than coach Manchester United.
“After training City, I will never train them (United), I would not train [Real] Madrid [after Barcelona]. I’d be in the Maldives if I don’t have any offers. Maybe not the Maldives because it doesn’t have any golf courses.” said Guardiola.
