Guardiola reveals he plans to finish his career as a coach at Barcelona…but
Pep Guardiola wants to finish his coaching career back with Barcelona's academy team.
But the Manchester City boss insisted he will never work with the first team of the Catalan giants again.
Guardiola, 47, was part of Barcelona's 1990s dream team before taking his first steps in management with the B team in 2007.
Then between 2008 and 2012, he won 14 trophies with Barcelona before three seasons with Bayern Munich and arriving in Manchester in 2016.
Guardiola, who signed a new deal in May to keep him at the Etihad Stadium until 2021, told Spanish TV: "I will finish again where I started. My last steps will be in the youth teams - I hope at Barca. I believe it’s - to start, it’s the best.”
But the Catalan said he will not return to work with the top team.
"My time there as a coach is finished because I’m not the same as I was then, nor is the way they see me the same," Guardiola said. "I had the time of my life there, when the world was our oyster, with some incredible players.
"I was at a fantastic age in which I was taking on the world. We took it on with some incredible players, a young president (Joan Laporta), Txiki (Begiristain).
"It was a generation of brutal players and the best player in the world (Lionel Messi). The stars aligned."
