thumbnail Hello,

After announcing his return to football with the Bundesliga giants next season, the 41-year-old's dad has denied reports he will look to capture some of his former players

Pep Guardiola's father says his son will not look to take any Barcelona stars to Bayern Munich after agreeing to take over the Bundesliga giants at the end of the season until 2016.

The former Blaugrana boss will take over from retiring Jupp Heynckes in the Allianz Arena hot-seat as of this summer, following an announcement earlier this week.

And while the 41-year-old admitted he wants to replicate the style of football he implemented at Camp Nou with his new club, his father dismissed rumours that his son will look to buy players from the Spanish league leaders.

"Barça is his home. He's not going to pull it apart, how would his home end up then?", Valentí Guardiola told Deportes Cuatro.

He then gave his thoughts on a possible language barrier stalling his son's progress at Bayern and whether or not he will be able to enjoy the same success in Germany as he did in Spain.

"Only time will tell. He'll put everything into his job and he will be able to defend himself in German," he added.

Barca midfielder Thiago Alcantara was one such player linked with a move to join his former boss, but has since denied that speculation.
