Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has ruled out a return to former club Bayern Munich ahead of the pre-season game between Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

Guardiola managed Bayern Munich before taking a sabbatical and then moving to Manchester City in 2016.

While Guardiola was full of praise for Bayern, even revealing he still owns an apartment in Munich, he dismissed the idea of returning to manage them after leaving City.

“No. I will be too old,” Guardiola said, regarding a return to Bayern Munich. “They have an exceptional manager now and they make good transfers for him. That’s why we will be longer. I will come back to visit.

“Of course it is a love. I was so incredibly happy there. I am looking forward to seeing so many people. It was an incredible part of my life.

“I still have an apartment in Munich, and after the pandemic maybe now I have time to visit. I have big, big memories there; I was so happy with my family.”
