Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Monday's edition of German
daily Bild that Guardiola told him at the club's Christmas party two weeks ago
"he is seeking a new challenge, and he almost apologized for that."
Asked whether Guardiola said where he is going, Rummenigge
replied: "I think I know where he is going. But I would like to leave the
announcement to him or his new employer."
Guardiola has been linked for months with the Manchester
City job held by Manuel Pellegrini.For
