There are speculations that Pep Guardiola may leave Manchester City at the end of his current contract having spent more years at the English club than any other club in his managerial career.
The Catalan contract will expire in 2025 and many believe that he could take a rest from managerial work and refuse to renew the contract or probably find another club where he will continue his glorious coaching career.
The controversial discussion resurfaced following the announcement made by Pep Guardiola’s main rival Jurgen Klopp who said he would leave Liverpool at the end of the season. Klopp’s announcement came as a surprise to many football lovers, including Pep Guardiola himself.
When asked what things might look like if the Catalan decides to quit the Premier League like Jurgen Klopp, Nathan Ake, the FA Cup fourth-round hero against Tottenham Hotspur said he would not discuss or think about such an issue at this moment.
“Well I don’t want to think about that,” the defender responded, claiming that the team remains focused on the season as they are now in the crucial part of the season.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola had to respond to a similar question during an interview after securing a victory for the first time in many years at the White Hart Lane stadium.
“I’ve still got one more year, I want to do it, maybe I’ll extend. I’m fine. What we did [in winning the treble] last season, you want more and more? It’s not going to happen,” the manager responded.
He insisted that the season remains his priority because Manchester City can not afford to lose a match, else, Liverpool will run away with the League title.
“What is important is just one step at a time. What I feel now is we cannot lose, otherwise, Liverpool will leave [us behind in the title race]. We still have the FA Cup, you have to be close [in the Premier League], around the corner is the Champions League.”
