Manchester City CEO rules out the prospect of Pep Guardiola joining Barcelona.
The Man City manager has made comments on a potential return to Barcelona in the future.
He won a total of 14 trophies during his four-year spell at Camp Nou between 2008 and 2012.
The Spaniard recently signed a new contract with the Cityzens which will keep him until the summer of 2025.
During a press conference ahead of the squad’s meeting against Arsenal in the FA Cup, Guardiola made a comment that sparked his potential return to Barcelona.
He said: “If I’m training here, wherever and Barcelona calls me, I’ll go to Barcelona, it’s my club.”
But Man City CEO Ferran Soriano claims that Guardiola’s comments were taken out of context by the media.
Soriano said: “No, I don’t think [Guardiola joining Barcelona] is possible.
“If you actually listen to Guardiola’s statements, he says ‘if I were assistant coach at Manchester City…’, but he’s not an assistant coach.
“He is the head coach at City. So, I’m sure that he won’t go to Barcelona or anywhere else in the next two and a half years.”
