Pep Guardiola might coach Manchester City for just one more season, but a return to Barcelona is not in his plans.

After winning the Premier League title with Manchester City, Pep Guardiola has taken some time off. The Catalan coach enjoyed watching the NBA Finals game between Boston and Dallas in the USA and is currently attending the Legends Golf Tournament in Girona.

During the event, he addressed the media and was asked an interesting question. A journalist wanted to know if Guardiola would be interested in returning to coach Barcelona.

"Yes, that door is closed. We are all older now," replied Guardiola, who began his coaching career at Barcelona. He first managed the B team before leading the first team from 2008 to 2012, during which he won three La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys, and two Champions League titles.

Guardiola also commented on the departure of Xavi from Barcelona, clarifying that it has nothing to do with him. He wished the new coach, Hansi Flick, the best of luck.

"I haven't been in Barcelona for 14 years. Xavi's departure is not my fault. I wish Hansi Flick all the best. They should give him time and patience. He will need to adapt to the environment."
