Pep Guardiola could have been Man Utd manager - if he had understood Sir Alex Ferguson's overtures

Pep Guardiola has admitted he might have ended up managing Manchester United had he realised Sir Alex Ferguson was trying to line him up as his Old Trafford successor over dinner in New York. But ahead of Sunday's eagerly awaited Manchester derby at Old Trafford, Guardiola insists he has no regrets about taking charge at Manchester City and says no club made more of an effort to secure his services. City will open up an 11-point lead over Jose Mourinho’s side at the top of the Premier League table if they claim a 14th successive league win, and deal a huge blow to their rival’s own title aspirations in the process. Yet Guardiola could have been standing in the United dug-out had he better understood Ferguson’s overtures to him when the pair met for dinner in a New York restaurant in December 2012, six months before the Scot retired after 27 years at the Old Trafford helm. Ferguson claimed in his book, Leading, that he asked Guardiola, who was halfway through a 12-month sabbatical after leaving Barcelona, to contact him before he accepted an offer from another club. But the Catalan says he failed to grasp Ferguson’s wish and instead joined Bayern Munich, with United eventually turning to David Moyes.

We spoke about life, about football, about the Premier League. But there was no message sent to me under the table about United. I think I would remember that! “It was just two friends, two colleagues in football, talking about many things. But what I do remember is that Sir Alex spoke really fast and it was difficult to understand him! But it was nice because he chose an amazing restaurant – and of course he paid!” Guardiola says it was difficult to understand Ferguson Credit: Getty Images Guardiola said he had already made his mind up at that time to move to Bayern but says no English club made more of an effort to entice him than City, whom he joined last year after three seasons in Bavaria. “Bayern Munich were the first club to call me, and then Manchester City, but I had already decided to try to prove myself in Germany and live that experience,” he said. “After that, from almost the day I arrived [at Bayern], Manchester City asked me again and I said that if I went to the Premier League I would go to them. “I spoke to Khaldoon [al-Mubarak, the City chairman] and Txiki [Begiristain, the director of football] again during my last period in Bayern Munich and they showed more interest than any other club to pick me up. That was so important to me. “I didn’t think about the hypothetical titles that could be won in the future or the titles that had been won in the past. And believe me, I don’t have any regrets about that.” The genius of Pep Guardiola: Eight things he has done to make Man City so frighteningly good Guardiola has won plaudits for his proactive, possession-based football at Barcelona, Bayern and City and says he would rather retire than play deep and on the counter-attack. “If that is going to happen [possession football not working], I’m going to retire,” Guardiola said. “Because I don’t feel it another way. I could defend more deep. But I want to have the ball and I want to play. The idea [of changing], that is not going to happen. Never. Never in my life.” Meanwhile, City captain Vincent Kompany has admitted he is likely to retire from international football with Belgium after the World Cup finals in Russia next summer. “At the moment it’s highly likely but I haven’t confirmed because I don’t want to make a decision too soon,” he said. “And if we go out in the group stages I might just say, ‘I need another go at this!’”

Vidal Goal Gives Bayern Munich Narrow Win to Extend Lead at the Top

Bayern Munich extended their lead at the top of the Bundesliga to eight points, albeit temporarily, after a narrow 1-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt at the Commerzbank Arena on Saturday.

The Bavarians headed into the game with a six point lead over their nearest challengers RB Leipzig at the top of the Bundesliga, and were coming off the back of an impressive 3-1 win over PSG in the Champions League. As for the hosts, they sat in ninth place, but were just four points behind second placed Leipzig, and were looking to close the gap on their European challengers.

Frankfurt made two changes from their last Bundesliga outing, with Aymen Barkok and Gelson Fernandes coming in for Mijat Gacinovic and Makoto Hasebe. As for the visitors, Bayern made six changes from the side that beat PSG in the Champions League midweek. Out went Sven Ulreich, David Alaba, Mats Hummels, Corentin Tolisso, Sebastian Rudy and Robert Lewandowski, all making way for Tom Starke, Jerome Boateng, Rafinha, Javi Martinez, Arturo Vidal and Thomas Muller.

Eintracht began the brighter of the two sides, with Jetro Willems posing an early threat down the left hand side, however it was the visitors that took the lead. Joshua Kimmich's corner was headed back out to the youngster, who then put an inviting ball in towards back post which an unmarked Vidal was able to head beyond Lukas Hradecky to give Bayern the lead.

Despite going 1-0 down, Frankfurt responded well. Both sides were enjoying spells of possession but were also creating chances. Barkok was able to find Marius Wolf in the box, however the midfielder was unable to direct his header on target.

Shortly afterwards, the home side went close again with a freekick designed on the training ground. The set piece was taken short to Willems who's powerful shot was saved by Starke - who was having a very busy afternoon.

Vidal then went close again on the stroke of half time, when a corner was headed out as far as the Chilean international, who chested the ball and struck a looping shot on the volley, however the keeper was able to see the ball over the bar.

Frankfurt began the second half the better of the two teams, enjoying the majority of the possession, however neither side were creating any clear cut chances. The game became a feisty affair, with a number of bookings being shown to both sides, before a moment of controversy came on the 70th minute mark.

Wolf lunged in on James Rodriguez and looked to have caught the Colombian late. The referee showed no hesitation in showing the Frankfurt player a straight red card, much to the frustration of the home side. The referee then referred to the video review, and upon review retracted the red card and awarded just a yellow, allowing Wolf to continue.

The incident seemed to spark the second half into life, with Frankfurt threatening the Bayern goal before a scramble in the penalty area resulted in the Bayern defence clearing the danger. Just minutes later, a ball across the face of Starke's goal had Haller waiting to poke the ball home, however Niklas Sule was able to get in front of his man and turn the ball behind for a corner.

Despite a spirited performance from the home side, Bayern were able to see the game out and round off a very successful week with a hard fought win.
