The Spanish manager confirmed earlier in the year that he will be leaving the Bundesliga giants to sign for Manchester City at the season’s end, and is fast approaching his departure date.
Having won the Bundesliga against Ingolstadt last weekend, Bayern ended their campaign with a convincing 3-1 home win over Hannover 96.
It was Guardiola’s last league game, with the coach now only facing a German Cup final against Borussia Dortmund before he leaves the Allianz Area.
Despite clearly enjoying a good relationship with both players and fans at Bayern, Guardiola has admitted—in an interview with beIN Sports—that he can’t see himself ever returning to manage the continental heavyweights.

“I don’t think [I will be back],” Guardiola admitted, with perhaps a twinge of regret. “Bayern need a new coach, to fight on another level.”
While the Spanish coach has achieved considerable success at the Allianz Arena, having won three Bundesliga titles, the German Cup, the Uefa Super Cup and the Club World Cup during his time with the club, many may consider his time with Bayern to have been a disappointment considering his failure to take the club back to the final of the Champions League.
