New Bayern boss won’t be going back.
Incoming Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has ruled out a future return to his former club Barcelona insisting that that chapter of his life is closed, according to the Daily Mail.
The 42-year-old will take over the reigns at Bayern Munich next season taking over from Jupp Heynckes who has secured the side’s place in this season’s Champions League final as well as wrestling the Bundesliga title back from Borussia Dortmund.
Guardiola is looking forward to testing himself in Germany but when asked whether he would consider a return to Barcelona one day he insisted that he is only looking to the future.
“I was happy at Barcelona,’ he said. ‘I had a wonderful relationship with the people I worked with. I am very proud to have been part of Barcelona, but life goes on and we need to pursue other goals. I felt a very large peace with myself when I left. I did the best I could.”
“Everything has a beginning and an end. And the end comes when you discover that it’s enough.”
“When you makes the decision to leave a club, it’s better than when the decision is taken for you.”
He will have his work cut out for him at Bayern as Heynckes’s side cruised to the league title and wrapped proceedings up in April.
