Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho insists he has no intention of coaching a Bundesliga club during his career.
Pep Guardiola, recently appointed coach of Bayern Munich, had an intense rivalry with Mourinho while in charge of Barcelona between 2008 and 2012.
He will end his season-long sabbatical when he succeeds Jupp Heynckes at Allianz Arena before the start of next season.
In an interview with Rai Sport, Mourinho said Guardiola’s switch to Germany does not concern him, nor does he intend to ever follow in his former rival’s footsteps.
“I have no comment to make, everyone is entitled to their choice,” Mourinho said.
“Has he deliberately chosen a league I am not involved in? I don’t know. What is certain is that I will not manage in Germany.
“I have nothing to say on the matter, it is all the same to me.”
