Former Barcelona manager and current Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola reportedly commented yet again on his old club this week. Pep is usually asked about the managerial situation and gives some sort of nonsense answer. This time around he recommended Spain’s current savior Luis Enrique.

This comes to us via Onze on Esport and outlines Pep’s recommendation to Barca president Joan Laporta. The two lads were apparently golfing and decided to chat about the interesting managerial situation at the club that saw Laporta end up deciding to keep Ronald Koeman.

Pep apparently told Laporta once again that he doesn’t want to come back to Camp Nou and take charge but thinks Lucho may be up for another stint as boss of the Catalan giants.

We’ll just have to see how long Koeman lasts before the rumors start coming out that Laporta is unhappy. Then perhaps he’ll take Guardiola up on his recommendation.
