After Bayern’s 3-1 victory over Hannover, Pep Guardiola said that he doesn’t foresee a return to coach Bayern Munich in his future.

"I don't think [I will be back]," Guardiola said. "Bayern need a new coach, to fight on another level."

Guardiola, as per usual, gave all of the credit for the triple of Bundesliga titles to the players. "Defending the league title is outstanding and a great compliment to these players. I learned a lot, it was completely different than in Barcelona. A great experience. I'm a better coach, a little bit. It was very good for me, for my development."

His biggest regret, of course, is not being able to win the UEFA Champions League with Bayern. "I could not win the Champions League for my players," he said. "I'm sorry for the fans and especially for the players. From the bottom of my heart, I hope that Carlo Ancelotti can get to the final!"

Guardiola’s last game with Der Rekordmeister will be next Saturday against Borussia Dortmund in the DFB-Pokal final in Berlin.
