However, a comfortable Champions League win over Marseille put them back on track before the Blues beat Sheffield United 1-0 away from home on Saturday afternoon. Guardiola is only now focusing on Manchester City. And has rejected talk of returning to Barcelona when it was brought after Saturday’s victory. “I have said many times that my managerial career at Barcelona is over,” Guardiola said in a post-match interview.
“There are incredible professionals who can be in charge. Now, for example, Ronald Koeman is a great coach. So it’s done. I will come back to my seats to see my club to watch a match, but it’s over. I’m pleased here, and I have the desire to well. It is the most important thing”. When Guardiola pushed for the future of Barcelona, he pointed to elections that are on the horizon in 2021 and invited members to choose the right candidate to move forward. “There are elections in Barcelona now, and hopefully they will be able to choose the right people and the right board to keep Barcelona at the highest level,” he added.
