Spanish coach Pep Guardiola said that he does not intend to leave Manchester City and return to Barcelona, after Victor Font, the candidate for the presidency of “Barca”, announced his desire to return Guardiola to “Camp Nou”.
“I am very happy in Manchester, and I hope to do well this season to continue for a longer period,” Guardiola added, in remarks made on the eve of Manchester City and its host Sheffield United, scheduled for Saturday, for the seventh week of the Premier League.
And there is only one year left in Guardiolas contract with “City”, but Font said that he wanted the Spanish coach to return to cooperation with Argentine star Lionel Messi, to ensure the latter’s continuation with the team beyond 2021.
Guardiola spent four successful seasons coaching Barcelona, winning three league titles, in addition to two Champions League titles, before leaving in 2012.
It should be noted that Messi’s contract with Barcelona ends at the end of the current season, and he was close to leaving the team last summer, after his dispute with the recently resigned Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu.
