Pep Guardiola played for Barcelona and also captained the team before he enjoyed four trophen laden years as manager from 2008 until 2012. As he takes Man City to battle Barca in the champions league, his dad debunked any possibility of Pep returning to Barca as a Manager.
Asked about the possibility of his son returning one day to work at Barca, Valenti Guardiola told Cadena Ser radio on Tuesday:
"Return to Barcelona? To do what, work as a ball boy? I really don't see him there either as president or on the bench. His time with Barca has come and gone. I don't think he would do well in going back.
"At the very least, I think we can rule him out coming back as coach. I say he could take the Catalan national team, but I don't see him coaching Spain," he said. I'm not just saying that out of spite against someone, everyone is free to think what they want. But I don't know what he will do. He has had a good start so far [at City]."
