Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has shocked the football world following his disclosure that he will likely retire from coaching after three years at Manchester.
The Spaniard, considered by many as the best Manager in world football has enjoyed tremendous success with Barcelona as well as Bayern Munich. He will be hoping to win silverware in the Premier League as his team struggle to match the rich vein of form they hit at the start of the season.
On Monday, Manchester City needed to dig deep to beat Burnley 2-1 and they had to do it with ten men after midfielder, Fernandinho was sent off for a two-footed challenge.
He told NBC sports, “Of course when we win, I am so happy, I am so satisfied,” Guardiola said. “And I drink a good glass of wine and enjoy.
“But what I like is to imagine the next step can be better. If not, I will not be here.
“In the moment, I will feel — and I am a little bit in that process — I feel that the end of my career, I will be…. I will not be training in the 60 and 65 years old, so…. No, no, no, no.
“Manchester City is three years or maybe longer, but I am still approaching the end of my career, like a manager. I am pretty sure of it.”
