The Barcelona centre-back admits his time at Manchester United means he would not be able to bring himself to join the Red Devils' arch-rivals
Gerard Pique says his love for Manchester United makes a reunion with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City impossible. Barca academy product Pique spent four years at Old Trafford before returning to Camp Nou in 2008, where he has enjoyed a trophy-laden eight years - including three La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys and two Champions League medals won under the stewardship of Guardiola.
The former midfielder has since gone on to enjoy further success in charge of Bayern Munich and will take on a fresh challenge at the Etihad Stadium next season.
However, Pique insists that a return to the Premier League with City is something he could never contemplate despite the respect he has for Guardiola.
"My love for [Manchester] United is too strong to go to City," he said on Periscope. "I don't see myself in their shirt even though Pep is a great coach."
