Pep: Why I Will Never Return To Barca

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed why he will never return to FC Barcelona's dugout, despite winning 14 trophies in a four-year spell with the Blaugrana.

Yaya Attacks Pep Again: 'Some Players Hate Him'

During the Spaniard's time at the Camp Nou, he lifted three La Liga titles, the UEFA Champions League twice and two Copa del Reys, among other pieces of silverware.

Despite this, Guardiola recently explained that he believes his time at the Catalan club has passed, and that he will not be returning.

"As a coach (of Barcelona), it's over. I am not the same, nor do they even look at me in the same way," he said on Spain's TV3.

"I was at a fantastic age in which I was taking on the world. We took it on with some incredible players, a young president (Joan Laporta), Txiki (Begiristain)... it was a generation of brutal players and the best player in the world (Lionel Messi). The stars aligned."

The Citizens boss was also asked if he would consider becoming the Spanish club's president at some point.

"President? No, I am a coach, and I am good at what I do, you can't be everything. When I stop coaching, you will find me playing golf."
