Barcelona presidential candidate Joan Laporta has declared his intention to reunite with former La Blaugrana manager Pep Guardiola at Camp Nou.
Between 2008 and 2012 Guardiola celebrated a four-year trophy with the Catalan giants, as the Spaniard won three titles in La Liga and two in the Barca Champions League.
Next year Joan’s contract is set to expire at Man City, and Guardiola can pursue new pastures elsewhere if a two-year European ban is imposed by the Council.
Laporta has stated that he dreams of reuniting with the former head of Barca in Catalonia as the future of Spain is still undetermined.
“I would very much like Guardiola to come back, but now he is at City and it is a decision that Pep should take,” Laporta said in quotes attributed to the Daily Mail.
“He is a benchmark for Barcelona and many Catalans would like him to train Barca again.”
Before leaving for Bayern Munich, Guardiola won 179 of his 247 matches in charge of La Blaugrana.
