Former Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde would rather a move to Australia than take over a Premier League club.
Valverde remains out of work since being sacked by Barca last month following defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup.
Valverde had guided the Catalan giants to the La Liga title the season before however it was a campaign that ended horribly following a Champions League exit at Liverpool and a Copa del Rey final loss against Valencia.
But it seems Valverde will not be heading to the Premier League any time soon, instead preferring a different challenge.
“People ask me sometimes ‘How about the Premier League?’ and I say ‘Well actually I’d like to go to Australia’,” the 56-year-old said.
“A career in football does not last forever and sometimes you think you have to take the opportunity to live in strange places.”
Valverde was sacked despite Barcelona being top of La Liga at the time and through to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
But the former Valencia, Villareal and Athletic Bilbao boss is determined not to look back and wonder what could have been.
“I had incredible luck to coach Barcelona,” Valverde added.
“I know what it means to coach there from all points of view and I am delighted to have been there.
“When you sign the contract you already know that everything depends on the results and that the coach will always be responsible [for them].
“I don’t think about whether I felt unfairly treated, and I understand [that people will] wonder about it, but it is about turning the page and not looking back.
“It interests me to look forward and not look back. I have not decided anything.
“I like doing weird things, maybe [I’ll take] a strange adventure.”
Barcelona return to action on Saturday as they host third-placed Getafe.
