Pep Guardiola's wife Cristina has returned to Spain with one of their three children in order to look after her fashion company, according to The Mirror.

She will be returning to Barcelona to better manage her business interests, which are based in Catalonia.

Cristina has been living with her husband in Manchester for the past three years, often commuting for her work.

The couple met while Cristina was working in her family's clothing boutique in Barcelona.

They have been married since May 2014, and have three children together: Marius, Maria, and Valentina.

Two of their children will be left behind with Pep, while he tries to steer Manchester City back on track in the title race.

They suffered a shock 3-2 defeat to Norwich City last week, but bounced back with a resounding 8-0 win against Watford on Saturday.

Manchester City have confirmed that although Cristina is returning to Spain, they have no worries about Pep staying at his post.

He is currently on a £20million-a-year contract with the Premier League champions.
