Ex Barcelona president, Joan Laporta has come out to say that he hopes to bring Pep Guardiola back to the club as he gets ready to run in the club’s presidential elections in 2021.
Laporta recently came out to say that it is one of his life goals to make sure the Spaniard returns to the club because he is a benchmark for Barcelona.
According to him, the elections next year would be dramatic and he is very excited to return as president of the club.
He added that Pep joining Barca would eventually be his decision since he is currently a Manchester City manager.
His words, “I’m working to introduce myself as a presidential candidate,”
“I’ve been president before and I’m excited to be back. The situation in 2021 will be dramatic and we’ll have to reverse it. I’m working with people I trust.
“I would very much like Guardiola to come back, but now he is at City and it is a decision that Pep should take. He is a benchmark for Barcelona and many Catalans would like him to train Barca again.
“At the right time, I will speak to the person we think should be a Barca coach from 2021.”
On Xavi, “Xavi is already a coach, he lives football and it is he who must decide what his moment is,”
“In 2021 there will still be players who were Xavi’s team-mates, and he must think if he is prepared to lead former team-mates, which is not an easy thing.”
