Pep Guardiola: Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

Barcelona ‘B’ team coach Tito Vilanova has been confirmed as the club’s new manager after Pep Guardiola announced in a press conference this morning that he would be stepping down at the end of the season.
Pep, who has won three league titles, two Champions League trophies and the Copa Del Rey during his four year tenure, stated that he would not be renewing his rolling contract because he has “nothing left and need(s) to recharge [his] batteries.”
He also rejected intense speculation about his future employment, saying ”Sooner or later I’ll take up another coaching job, but not right now.” This has not put off the likes of Roman Abramovich, who is reportedly planning to tempt Guardiola to Chelsea with a huge financial deal.
This IS an interesting development, Kickettes. What does the future hold for our former (we wish) conquest? And more importantly, where would you like to see him plying his trade?
Don’t say your bedroom. We can assure you, we covered that earlier.
