Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed that he has no plans on becoming a manager at Manchester United in the future.
The City boss won several major trophies with Barcelona and Bayern Munich and famously defeated Sir Alex Ferguson in the Champions League 2010-2011 final at Wembley.
While Sir Alex Ferguson was edging closer to his retirement, Guardiola was linked with a move to Old Trafford as his long-term potential replacement.
But the Spaniard eventually signed for Bayern Munich while United turned to former Everton boss David Moyes – six months later, Moyes was sacked while Pep thrived in the Bundesliga.
Speaking ahead of Manchester derby on Tuesday night in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final, Guardiola addressed his future.
“After training City I won’t train Man United. It is like I would never train Madrid. Definitely not,” Pep said as written on Evening Standard.
Guardiola went forward to predict that Manchester United will bounce back winning the Premier League again after claiming recent struggle at Old Trafford is normal.
“I have incredible respect for this club – sooner or later they’ll be back and fighting for the Premier League. In this period they struggle – [but] there is a not a team that wins and wins,” Guardiola added.
