Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola have insisted that he want to remain in Manchester and he would like to stay longer and Manchester City as he and his managerial history makes him virtually un-sackable.
The exit of Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday, less than six months after taking Tottenham to the first Champions League final in their history, underlined how quickly managers can come under intense pressure if results go badly.
“I want to live in this city,” he said.”There are lovely people here. I want to work and live with them. I want to help this club get better. “I see things you cannot,” he said. “I am there at every training session. I am in the locker room. I am at the games. I have plans. Sometimes they work and we don’t win. Sometimes they are a disaster and we do. I have the information. That’s the reason.”
The City boss could not be any more certain either, about the merits of his squad.When he was asked why that was the case, given results and performances have been so patchy this season, Guardiola oozed defiance.
Guardiola resigned as Barcelona manager in 2012 after four years in the job, citing burnout, has created uncertainty around the Catalan, leading to suggestions his time in Manchester may come to an abrupt end at the end of the current campaign, his fourth in England.
