“I Don’t Care” – Guardiola Gives Honest Response About Man United’s Future

Pep Guardiola is only concerned about Manchester City’s ability to remain at the very top for as long as possible, not minding if Manchester United made it to the top again, although he believes that story at Old Trafford might change following the arrival of Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s 25% purchase of Manchester United was officially completed this week and the British billionaire has been discussing his plans to rebuild at Old Trafford.

During a media chat this week, Ratcliffe used Manchester City and Liverpool as teams to measure success and how a football club should be managed. He admitted that the two Red Devils rivals have gotten everything in place to enhance their success and this can be seen on the pitch whenever they play.

Manchester City have been dominating the league for the past six years, winning many league titles including the last three. Liverpool have been the closest team to challenge Pep Guardiola’s team and they managed to beat the Cityzens to the league title in 2020.

Manchester United on the other hand have been in the shadow of itself since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. They haven’t won the league since then and the Carabao Cup won by Erik ten Hag last season was their first trophy in six years.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of facing Bournemouth this weekend, Guardiola said he is not worried about Ratcliffe’s comment, but backed the Red Devils to regain their best version in the coming campaigns.

“It is not [something] I am about worried. I think I am pretty sure with Sir Jim Ratcliffe and the other people Manchester United are going to make a step forward.

“All the teams want it [to be at the top] and we want to be there. As long as I am here we will try to be there again,” Guardiola said.

“What I want is Manchester City, my team, to be there. The rest I don’t care. We want to be there. Only under Jose Mourinho were they second. I would say they have not been close like Liverpool in many years. But always I expected, when I arrived from day one, always, I expected Manchester United to be there. Because of their story, tradition, and many things.

“That didn’t happen. I don’t know the reason why. They know it, I guess. Maybe. It’s their business, not our business. What we want is to be there for ourselves.”
