PEP: I'LL NEVER RETURN TO BARCA
The Spaniard has quashed any chance of tabloids linking him with a return to his former club as pressure heaps on Luis Enrique following their 4-0 defeat to PSG in the Champions League on Tuesday.
"I will never go back to Barcelona to be coach there. My period there is gone," the Man Citycoach said.
"Barcelona are still the best team in the world. It's always a surprise because they are so, so good, but in football anything can happen.
"When you have dominated world football, it's normal that the people expect you to keep up that level, but my advice to you, knowing Luis and the players a little, is not to talk too much, because they will be back and prove you wrong.
"They've done it over the years, dominating football for 10 years, and they continue to be the best team in the world."
