Pep marvels at Messi on Camp Nou return

Pep Guardiola made his first return to Camp Nou on Wednesday after a near three-year absence and admitted it felt "really good" to watch his old club Barcelona take on Manchester City in the Champions League.

Guardiola opted against renewing his contract at Barca towards the end of the 2011/12 campaign after a trophy-laden spell at the club with whom he made his name as a player.

Having claimed three La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys, two Fifa Club World Cups and two Champions League crowns as coach, he cited fatigue for his decision to walk away.

The story is too old to be commented.
