While Victor Font, candidate for the presidency of Barça, expressed his wish to see Pep Guardiola return to the Catalan club as a coach, the Spaniard answered him in the press, with clarity.
PEP GUARDIOLA press answer:
“I’m a manager for Manchester City, so … I want to do very good results here this season. The period to come back to Barcelona as a manager is over. I had my period there which was incredibly good, but now there is Ronald Koeman there and we have to respect him please. He is the coach and a friend, a very good friend, and the future is now in Barcelona, for the elections, to appoint the new president and the new board of directors. To lead this team and this club in the best way, as it has always been. I’m getting old.
To be a manager in Barcelona, you have to have a special energy and something special that I no longer have in me. That’s why it’s up to other people, young people and good coaches, to do it. As I have said many times, my time in Barcelona as a manager is over”. Pep Guardiola, 49, managed FC Barcelona from 2008 to 2012, winning the Champions League twice and the Liga three times.
