Joshua Kimmich has admitted that he would love to see Pep Guardiola return to Bayern Munich as manager.
Reports have suggested that Bayern, in the search for a new boss, view Guardiola as their ideal candidate.
Reflecting on the rumours, Kimmich told The Mirror: "Regarding Pep Guardiola I have no idea what Bayern's plan is with Hansi Flick.
"At first you thought that we would get a new coach after the international break. Now, we won both games with Flick and it sounds like he will stay until winter or even the entire season. What happens then is the business of the club – we players have nothing to do with it.
"But of course, I know [Guardiola] and have a lot to thank him for. He took me from the second division and let me play in the Bundesliga. We won the double together and after that season I became a player for Germany. So, of course, I won't be against him coming back."
Guardiola spent three years at the Allianz Arena between 2013 and 2016, winning three consecutive titles ahead of moving to Manchester City.
The Catalan's future at Manchester City has recently come under question following a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool, with some reports suggesting that he will not see out his contract at the Etihad, which expires in 2021.
