Pep Guardiola may leave Manchester City after seven years. According to the Daily Mail, major talks about the coach’s future will take place later this year.
The 51-year-old has long been considered one of the best coaches in the world, if not the best. For four years he led FC Barcelona, and also spent three seasons at Bayern Munich.
After “Die Roten” he decided to take over Manchester City. He has been working at Etihad Stadium for more than six years. He has had great success in the Premier League but still falls short of a Champions League win.
This season will likely be Guardiola’s last at the club. The current Spaniard’s contract expires in June next year. It is not yet known if he will decide to extend it.
The period during the World Cup will be crucial. During this time, the Spaniard intends to rest a bit and think seriously about his future. He will also meet the owners of the “Citizens”.
He was tired of the talks between the two sides in Abu Dhabi. Guardiola intends to consider whether he can still motivate City players to improve their skills.
In the last match before the World Cup break, the champions of England were disappointed, losing 1-2 to Brentford. They are now five points behind leaders Arsenal, who have won 12 of their 14 Premier League matches so far.
