Pep Guardiola says he is not interested in becoming Barcelona president, although he does expect to return to the city in the future.

The Manchester City boss was asked if he would ever consider returning to the club as the president but gave the idea short shrift.

“I will return to Barcelona sooner or later,” he affirmed. But as president, forget about it. To be president, you have to know [what you’re doing] and be prepared; to have knowledge that I don’t have.

”I’m trying to be a good coach; that hasn’t gone too badly in this decade. I will return to Barcelona to live, sooner or later.”

Pep signed a new contract with Manchester City in 2018 that will keep him at the Etihad Stadium until the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
