Guardiola appears to confirm that he will leave Manchester City in 2023

Guardiola’s City success

Pep Guardiola has been one of Europe’s most successful managers in the last two decades, having coached three of the greatest sides in Europe in the form of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City.


The Spanish coach, who has won 31 major honours to his name, took over Manchester City in the summer of 2016, and finished third in his first season in English football. Often criticised for the amount of money spent with the Citizens, it nonetheless has returned significant success.

Despite not having yet won the Champions League, Guardiola has returned 3 Premier League trophies, 4 League Cups and a FA Cup to northwest England, and has set up a dynasty of success at the Etihad.

Guardiola seems to confirm he will leave in 2023

As per Globo, however, it appears as though Guardiola has confirmed that he will not be extending his stay in Manchester beyond his current deal, which expires in 2023. Speaking at an XP Investimentos convention, the Manchester City manager was quizzed on what his managerial future held, and the Spaniard revealed that:

“I must take a break after seven years (from Manchester City), I need to stop and see, learn from other coaches, and maybe take that path [managing a national side]. I would like to train [a team] in a Euro Cup, a Copa America, a World Cup”

However, when pressed further to name National sides that he may be keen to take over, he would not be drawn except for commenting that “important teams like Brazil” are hard to manage.

Nevertheless. crucially, Guardiola appeared to confirm that he would not be staying in England longer than the end of his current deal, which would represent 7 years at Manchester City.

Which National team should the Spaniard take over?
