Pep Guardiola has described the English Premier League (EPL)as the most unpredictable worldwide, saying the nature of the EPL has brought the best from him as manager.

"I am a better manager than I was in Germany, and I am a better manager now than I was in Barcelona by far, just for the fact of being there," he said at the Peers Annual Lecture at Liverpool University on Wednesday.

"Now, I feel being here I am a better manager too because I learned to handle this incredible league in many circumstances.

The Spaniard is in his third season at Manchester City and led them to the Premier League title with a record 100 points last season.

Guardiola delivered three La Liga titles and two Champions League trophies with Barcelona before leading Bayern Munich to three consecutive Bundesliga titles during his three years in Germany.

However, the 47-year-old believes his managerial skills have improved further since coming to England.

Asked for his views on how the Premier League rated to other domestic competitions, Guardiola feels England's top flight is the "most unpredictable".

"It is the toughest one, for the amount of games, for the weather and the referees saying: 'play (on), play (on), play (on)' and the competitors, there are many. It is the only country that five or six [teams] can win the Premier League," Guardiola added.

He also hinted of managing a national team in future , saying "I would like to be an international manager in a national team," .

"Sooner or later, it will happen because every three days I would like to be involved, but a little bit more calm, play more I do not have time to play.

"So yes, sooner or later it is going to happen, if I have a chance and some international team wants to come 'knock knock'. We will see." He declared
