Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says he isn’t returning to Barcelona to pay homage or anything. He is coming back with a sole purpose of knocking his former club out of the Champions League.
The former Blaugrana coach will face his former club ever since he left in 2012.
“It’s wonderful to be back,” he said on Tuesday.
“Obviously it’s very special for me because I have been at this club for many years. Now I am with Bayern and I am here for the match tomorrow – that’s my job and I have to do my best.
“I knew that if I coached great clubs that there would be a possibility to return here. This is the first time of course. I am not here for a tribute. I am here to do my job.
“We have to score, it will be difficult to play well in Munich if we don’t score here. We need at least one goal. It’s virtually impossible to just defend here.
“Barcelona are an important part of my life but I am here to win. We have prepared to give our best and I will be very happy if we score a goal, but I don’t know what my reaction will be.”
