Pep Guardiola: I won't coach Barcelona ever again | inside World Soccer

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed that he has no intention of ever resuming his former position as coach at Barcelona.


Guardiola spent four trophy-laden years in charge at Barça, creating one of the greatest sides the game has ever seen and winning the Champions League twice and La Liga three times between 2008 and 2012.

However, disagreements with the Barcelona hierarchy and exhaustion led to Guardiola going on hiatus in New York before he was appointed as Bayern coach in 2013.

It has often been suggested in the media that he could one day return to Barcelona for a second spell in charge, but the 43-year-old has completely ruled out a return to the Camp Nou.

Guardiola told ARA Esports: "In principle, I've no intention of ever coaching Barça again.

"That chapter has come to an end. I think that in life there are cycles and mine has come to an end."

Guardiola did claim that one day he would return to Catalonia permanently but it will be to reside with his wife and not to return to the Spanish giants.

He added: "My wife works here (in Barcelona), so we'll probably end up living here. As to when? I don't know."
