Ex-Barcelona president Rosell: Guardiola left due to players not board

Former Barcelona president Sandro Rosell says Pep Guardiola left due to problems with the players.

Rosell explained the Manchester City manager left because of the players, not due to tension with the board.

“It's not true," said Rosell. “They've explained it actively and passively, Guardiola and the players. Pep left because of an argument with the players. A problem they had in the dressing room."

He also claimed: “My four years at Barça are the best in the history of the club.

“In terms of titles, money, history made, socially, with the foundation, they are the best. There are stats. You can tell me 'Rosell, I don't like you, I can't stand you', but the objective data of my time in charge are published and audited on Barcelona's official website. I've never defended myself, but the numbers are what they are."
