Guardiola tipped to return to Spain in summer
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola could return to La Liga is the summer according to Brazil legend Rivaldo.
Rivaldo, who played alongside Guardiola during his era at Barcelona says the City boss could be tempted to go back to Spain in the summer. Rivaldo says that success could lead to Guardiola - who has again missed out on winning the Champions League with City - eventually looking to take his family back home to Spain.
Speaking to Betfair, Rivaldo said, “Manchester City have changed for the better since Pep Guardiola’s arrival and winning two consecutive titles in such a competitive league means he is now a key part of the club’s history.”
“Of course, when you perform well it’s normal that other top clubs become interested in your services. I believe Pep will have other opportunities and new projects to think about this summer and, despite his apparent satisfaction at the Etihad, perhaps a good proposal from a Spanish club could interest him.”
“I’m saying this because Pep doesn’t like to be away from his family and friends and really enjoys the time spent with them, so a possible return to Spain would be helpful.”
Guardiola helped City retain the Premier League, seeing off the determined challenge of Liverpool by a point.
