Pep Guardiola says he is coming to the end of his coaching career and admits Manchester City may be one of the last clubs he manages. The Spaniard won three La Liga titles and two Champions Leagues at Barcelona and claimed three successive Bundesliga crowns with Bayern Munich before taking over from Manuel Pellegrini at City in the summer. Pep Guardiola is only six months into life at Manchester City, after joining in July following their three-year pursuit of the 45-year-old. He signed a three-year deal with City in the summer and Guardiola is a believer that such a time period is the optimum time to devote yourself to one club, to achieve maximum results.
However, despite having only been a coach for less than a decade, he has surprisingly admitted – particularly given he is only six months into his tenure at the Etihad – that “the process of my goodbye has already started.”
Guardiola added: “I will not be a trainer when I am 60 or 65 years old. Manchester City is three years, or maybe longer, but I am still approaching the end of my career as a manager – I am sure of that.”
