Why I cannot return as Barca coach –Guardiola

Pep Guardiola ruled out ever taking charge of Barcelona for a second spell as the Manchester City boss insisted he retains the “desire ” to succeed in England .

Guardiola is the most decorated coach in Barca ’ s glorious history after winning 14 trophies in four years in charge between 2008 and 2012 .

Josep Maria Bartomeu finally bowed to pressure to resign as president of the Catalan giants this week , with one of the leading candidates to take over , Victor Font, saying he wants to bring legends like Guardiola and his former players Xavi and Carles Puyol back to work for the club .

“ I said many times, my period as a manager in Barcelona is over . I think in life there is once you have to do things, ” Guardiola said after City ’ s 1 – 0 win over Sheffield United on Saturday .

“ There are incredible people who can be in charge , now for example (Barcelona coach) Ronald Koeman is an excellent manager. It is over . ”

A boyhood Barca fan , Guardiola also enjoyed an illustrious playing career at the Camp Nou and still holds season tickets as a supporter.

“ I will come back to my seats to see my club to watch a game .



I am incredibly happy here, still I have the desire to do well and this is the most important thing .

“ Now there will be elections in Barcelona . Hopefully , they can choose the right board to maintain this incredible club Barcelona in the highest level . ”

Guardiola is already into the longest managerial spell of his career with this his fifth season at City .

His side still look a long way off the heights they reached in winning back – to – back Premier League titles between 2017 and 2019 , but they are slowly getting up to speed after a start to the campaign disrupted by injuries , coronavirus cases and just a two – week – long pre -season .

Kyle Walker’ s long – range effort against his former club was enough to secure City’ s fourth win in five games in all competitions as they move up to seventh in the Premier League , just two points off the top .

Without a natural striker due to injuries to Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus , City struggled to turn their dominance into goals at Bramall Lane.

“ We played really well , ” added Guardiola.

“ We struggled to score goals for the chances we created, 16 shots , eight on target , is a lot against this team . ”
