Making a case for Pep to return.

Pep Guardiola left Barcelona in 2012 because he felt he could no longer inspire the team, but it might be time for him to come back and finish what he started.

The Catalan is now in charge of Bayern Munich, where things are not going as planned.  

His side won the Bundesliga in brutal fashion and have reached the German Cup final, but they were humbled in the Champions League by Real Madrid, 5-0 on aggregate.  

Guardiola said, upon leaving Barcelona, as per the Daily Mail:

I felt as if I could no longer lift the team. We were incredibly successful - winning 14 trophies in only four years was the greatest period in the club’s history. But gradually I found it more and more difficult to motivate myself and to motivate the team. That is when you know it is time to walk away.

Returning to the Camp Nou is probably not on his to-do list, but if he did, he might be able to save the club from what has been a horrific 2014 so far.
