Guardiola's father: He could return to Barcelona, but it would be to coach
Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola was awarded the coach of the year prize by the Catalan FA on Tuesday night, with his father accepting the award on his behalf and discussing his future.
Guardiola sent a recording to accept the award, though he was unable to attend due to his commitments with the Citizens.
His father Valenti Guardiola was present to collect the trophy, inevitably being asked about whether his son would ever return to Barcelona.
"It could be a yes, that he returns to Barcelona, but it would be to coach," he responded.
"Since he left home, he has always made his own decisions.
"I've never advised him."
Guardiola left Barcelona in 2012, going on a year-long sabbatical before joining Bayern Munich and then moving to Manchester City.
