Guardiola Responds To Barca Return Rumours

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has responded to the reports linking him with a return to FC Barcelona.

Barca presidential candidate, Victor Font, publicly stated that he would like to bring the Spaniard back to Camp Nou.

However, following City’s 1-0 win over Sheffield United on Saturday, Guardiola dismissed any ambitions to head back.

“I’ve said it many times, my career as a manager at Barcelona is over… I’m still incredibly happy here (at City), I still have the desire to do well and this is the most important thing.

“Now, there will be elections at Barcelona and hopefully they can choose the right people for the right board to maintain this incredible club at the highest level.

“My career there as a manager was incredible and now (Ronald) Koeman is there, respect him please. He’s the manager, a real friend of mine.

“I’m getting old so to be manager at Barcelona, you have to have a special energy…That’s why it belongs to young people.”
