Chelsea told to stop pestering Guardiola for coaching role at Stampford Bridge

London, Wed, 05 Dec 2012 ANI

London, Dec. 5 (ANI): Chelsea have reportedly been told to stop pestering Pep Guardiola or risk losing out on the former Barcelona coach.

It comes as Blues owner Roman Abramovich is desperate to confirm Guardiola as his new long-term manager after sacking Roberto Di Matteo and appointing Rafa Benitez as interim boss.

But the former Nou Camp idol is growing increasingly irritated by persistent approaches from Chelsea, The Sun reports.

According to the paper, Guardiola's advisors made it clear to Abramovich that he does not appreciate the mounting pressure they are putting on him to reveal his next club.

Guardiola, 41, had stunned the soccer world in April when he announced he was quitting Barcelona and would be taking a year's break. But Chelsea were on the phone less than a month later begging him to take charge at Stamford Bridge, the paper said.

And it was only when Guardiola rejected Abramovch's overtures that Di Matteo was confirmed as Chelsea's full-time boss despite winning their first Champions League crown, it added.

A second approach was made and declined last month before the decision had even been taken to dump Di Matteo, it concluded. (ANI)
