The coach apologized in case he offended anyone by announcing his move to Premier League
Pep Guardiola congratulated Leo Messi and Luis Enrique for the awards won at FIFA Ballon d'Or gala. Bayern Munich coach explained that they deserve it and highlighted the great treble season of FC Barcelona.
Once again, the Catalan coach was forced to answer questions about his future after he announced some days ago that he would leave Bayern. Guardiola even apologized in case he offended some Premier League coach explaining his decision.
Goodbye to Bayern
"The reason is simple: I want to coach in the Premier League. Bayern Munich is a fantastic club, but I decided to leave."
"I would have liked to stay in FC Barcelona for 20 years, but I like to discover new things."
"Maybe after England I will be willing to discover another country, I don't know..."
"I'm sorry. In my career as player and coach, I usually respect my mates, so I'm sorry if someone got offended. It wasn't my intention."
Awards for Messi and Luis Enrique
"They deserved to win the award. FC Barcelona's season was incredible and Messi showed his level again. He is really good. And Luis Enrique showed his ability to manage a great team with big stars."
