Pep Guardiola has revealed that he does not see himself being at Manchester City in 20 years time, report the BBC.
City face Arsenal today as they both look to keep pace with league leaders Chelsea, but Guardiola does not see himself replicating Gunners boss Arsene Wenger and staying at the Etihad long-term. When quizzed by the BBC as to whether he could do what Wenger has at Arsenal, Guardiola shook his head and claimed “it is not possible.”
It is rare that managers are given the opportunity to stay at a club as long as Wenger has at Arsenal. The way that football is now, managers are under pressure if they suffer a few bad results consecutively.
Guardiola’s reasoning is not that he will be sacked by City, however, he revealed to the BBC that he does not believe that he will be in management in 20 years time. Though only 45-years-old, with many managers going on deep into their 60’s and into their 70’s – Guardiola will call time on his career before he reaches that age.
