Pep Guardiola is leaving Barça on June 30 after four years in charge of the first team. He announced his decision this Friday morning to president Sandro Rosell and the squad.

Sandro Rosell expressed his “eternal gratitude” to the coach for the “happiness” he has given the club.

Guardiola is departing as the most successful manager in FCB history, having won 13 titles to date. Having also played for Barça between 1991 and 2001, he returned in 2007 to coach the reserve team. A year later he took over the first team and led them to four unprecedented years of success.

Meanwhile, Mr Sandro Rosell has announced that Tito Vilanova will be the next manager of the Barça first team in replacement of Pep Guardiola.
