Guardiola

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is fancying a return to Barcelona before he ends his coaching career to take charge of the B team once more.

The 47-year-old took over Barca B in 2007 before becoming coach of the senior side a year later, following the departure of Frank Rijkaard.

He won three LaLiga titles, two Champions Leagues and two Club World Cups in a memorable four years before enjoying similar levels of success with Bayern Munich.

Now in his third season with City, he is hoping to defend the Premier League title they won last season with a record-breaking points tally of 100 and has already hinted at staying in England for a decade.

However, Guardiola hopes to conclude his career in the dugout in the same place that it started.

“My teams are going to try to play how I want,” he said to Jorge Valdano on Universo Valdano.

“I will finish where I started; my final steps will be with youth teams. Hopefully, it will be Barca’s.”
