Barcelona: Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has reiterated his desire to take a break from football in order to recharge his batteries, but admitted that he is open to a return if he receives an interesting proposal in future.
The 41-year-old recently announced his decision to quit Barcelona this summer to take a sabbatical from the game after a highly successful four-year stint with the Blaugrana. Nevertheless, Guardiola's farewell to the game could only be temporary as he is keen to make a return once he is ready.
"I will be pleased to receive calls [from interested clubs], of course, but for the next few months I have to recharge my batteries, recharge my mind," Guardiola told reporters at a press conference.
"I'm going to rest for now and then I will wait. If a club wants me once I've recharged my batteries, and they seduce me, I will coach again."
Guardiola will be in charge of Barcelona for the last time in Friday's Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao.
