‘PSG not right for Guardiola’

Former Barcelona President Joan Laporta believes that Paris Saint-Germain is not the right destination for Pep Guardiola.

Reports yesterday suggested that the 41-year-old Coach had decided to go to the Premier League next season.

And the lawyer-turned-politican has admitted that he was right to turn down the French club.

“Pep will definitely return as a Coach next year,” he told Expressen. “He has a great personality, very clear ideas and is very intelligent.

“I do not see how Paris would be able to convince Guardiola to manage there. I think that the club don't have the proper structure for him.

“There will be many reason behind whatever choice Pep makes. He will analyse all the destinations, but he wants to have the power to decide on all sporting matters and be comfortable working there.

“All the big clubs would have Guardiola as Coach. He is the best in the world.”
