Guardiola always wanted to sign annual contracts with the teams he managed so as not to be tied down if things went wrong and the results were not what he expected.
In his last season at Barcelona, Guardiola cited fatigue and the need for recovery time as the reasons for his departure. Since then, he has not ruled out returning to the club one day, in response to the wishes of the Culés and their president Joan Laporta, who assured that the doors would always be open to him.
