Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed he wants a return to Barcelona as he is eyeing to finish his coaching career there. However, Guardiola has made it clear he has no intention to work with the senior team.
Guardiola came into the coaching foray when he was handed the charge of the Barcelona B back in 2007. Following his excellent success story with the Barcelona Reserves, the club hierarchy decided to reward him with a promotion to the senior team and the rest was history.
The Spaniard manager went on to become one of the most successful managers of all time as he led Barcelona to a completely different height. The Manchester City manager wrapped up 14 trophies with the Catalan giants before leaving the club.
His decorated CV also includes League titles in Germany and England. Guardiola said, “I will finish again where I started. My last steps will be in the youth teams – I hope at Barca. I believe it’s – to start, it’s the best.”
“My time there as a coach is finished because I’m not the same as I was then, nor is the way they see me the same.
“I had the time of my life there, when the world was our oyster, with some incredible players.
“I was at a fantastic age in which I was taking on the world. We took it on with some incredible players, a young president (Joan Laporta), Txiki (Begiristain).
“It was a generation of brutal players and the best player in the world (Lionel Messi). The stars aligned.”
