Pep Guardiola has confirmed his dedication to EPL champions Manchester City, ruling out any hints of returning to Camp Nou.
Under Pep, Manchester City became the first English football club to win a domestic treble – Premier League, FA Cup and the Carabao Cup last season, only falling short of a Champions league victory.
The Catalan was linked to a move to Juventus afterwards as a successor to Massimiliano Allegri, but the interests dropped as former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri secured his job at Turin.
The former FC Bayern Munich boss had a long history of links with Barça, where he won 2 Champions league and 3 La Liga titles.
But in a recent interview with Catalan newspaper Ara, Guardiola indicated his commitment with the Citizens, with his contract running till 2021.
“I have everything here, sincerely, everything I need.”
“Work at home [in Spain] is more wearing because the emotions are so intense and the press conferences harder.”
“Here, in Manchester, I have [director of football] Txiki [Begiristain], who is the most important person of my career because he trusted me when I was no one.” the 48-year old added.
“I have [chief executive] Ferran [Soriano] also, who sometimes asks, ‘How can it be so cold?’. But, at the same time, he manages with a brutal precision.
“When I win I am good, when I lose I am bad. That is the same everywhere, but in this club we are three or four people deciding in the sporting area, there isn’t the noise of 18 board members.
“I extended my contract because we have a young team, I have everything I desire to do my job. I won’t go back here [to Barcelona] or Germany.
“Where can I find facilities so good as in such a beautiful league as the Premier League?”
