Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola insists he will never manage Manchester United, even if it is the only job he was offered.
Guardiola who was on United’s radar to replace Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013 before his side’s trip to Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup semi-final on Tuesday.
Asked whether he would ever take charge of City’s fierce rivals, Guardiola said:
“After training City I will never train them (United), I would not train [Real] Madrid [after Barcelona]”
“I’d be in the Maldives if I don’t have any offers. Maybe not the Maldives because it doesn’t have any golf courses.”
The Spaniard chose Bayern Munich over United in 2012 when Sir Alex retired.
The 48-year-old has won 20 major honours since he started his professional coaching career in 2007.
