Pep Guardiola has no regrets at having snubbed Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson to eventually link up with Manchester City.

He insists that he never spotted an invitation to head to Old Trafford and has no complaints at having ended up across Manchester at the Etihad Stadium via three years at Bayern Munich.

Guardiola told reporters on his meeting with Ferguson: "My English in that period was not as good as it is right now - and so maybe I just didn't understand what Sir Alex told me.

"We met in a magnificent restaurant for dinner and I think he has said he suggested to me something about going to Old Trafford.

"Bayern Munich were the first club to call me, and then -Manchester City, but I had already decided to try to prove myself in Germany and live that experience."

Guardiola will be at Old Trafford on Sunday with City, as he prepares to rekindle his rivalry with old adversary Jose Mourinho in another Premier League derby duel.
