Sandro Rosell: “Pep left through the front door”

The Barcelona President Sandro Rosell was very pleased with how the Camp Nou said goodbye to Josep Guardiola last night.“

“The Camp Nou clamored for Guardiola. Pep we love you. We can’t say anything else. It was fantastic,” said Rosell

During his talk on the Camp Nou’s pitch after tonight’s match, Pep Guardiola hinted at a possible return when he said

“I’ll see you later.” Rosell said that this “is good news. Everyone loves Pep and we all want him to return.” He added that the manager has “exceeded any protagonism in the Club.” He added, “he left through the front door and he’ll come back through the front door. When he wants. In these moments, I’m proud to be FC Barcelona’s president.”

After two years of leading Barça, Rosell explained that Guardiola’s success is based, among other things, on work:

“I’m sticking with the image of him on the plane, after an away match, when he returns home and starts to work. He doesn’t stop. It’s admirable. I’m very surprised. Success isn’t achieved by chance, success is achieved through hard work. We’ll miss him but I’m sure that we’ll thoroughly enjoy [this team] once again.”
