GUARDIOLA’S AGENT SPEAKS ON RETURN TO BAYERN

Pep Guardiola’s agent, Josep Maria Orobitg has played down reports that his client could go back to the Allianz Arena

Manchester City boss Guardiola has been linked with a return to Bayern lately but Maria believes Manchester City boss will not return to Bayern Munich as Niko Kovac’s successor.

Kovac was relieved of his duties after a 5-1 humbling by Eintracht Frankfurt and has been replaced by coach Hansi Flick for the remainder of 2019 as Bayern source a long-term successor.

Reports in Germany had suggested Guardiola could be in line for a return to the Allianz Arena – but Orobitg insists the Spaniard is happy at the Etihad.

“In football, nothing is certain,” Orobitg told Goal.

“I spoke with Pep last Wednesday, and everything is the same: He feels good at Manchester City and also in the city of Manchester, and he has a contract until June 30, 2021.

“Nobody but the press contacted me about the future Pep.”

Arsene Wenger held talks with Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rumenigge but the duo could not strike a deal and the Frenchman has now taken on a new role at FIFA.

Erik ten Hag, Thomas Tuchel and Jose Mourinho have also been linked with the post as Bayern look to cut the four-point gap to Bundesliga leaders Borussia Monchengladbach.
