Pep Wants To Return Next Season

Former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has revealed that he aims to return to coaching next season.

The tactician took a break from the game after leaving his position as head coach at the Catalans at the end of the 2011/12 season.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of the Ballon d'Or ceremony, he admitted that he would be keen to get back into coaching next season.

"Yes, I would like to come back. I don’t have a team, I don’t know, but I would like to go back to coaching," he said.

"My decision has been taken to coach, but beyond that there is no decision taken."

Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal have all been linked with a move for the successful manager, while German giants Bayern Munich have also been thrown into the mix.

Guardiola would not be drawn into such speculation though, saying: "It would be a lack of respect to other coaches to speak about any team that is being run by a coach anywhere in the world."

Regarding his former club, he added: "I keep watching Barcelona on TV and it's great to watch the team. I was a lucky man to spend a few years with this fantastic team and it's a source of pride to know they continue to play just as well or even better than when I was there.

"It was a gift to have that team and it's more of a gift to know it's still going on. It didn't start with me, it started a long,long time ago and I was just one part of that."
