Manchester City chief insists manager Pep Guardiola will see out his contract



Manchester City chief Ferran Soriano insists manager Pep Guardiola will see out his contract, which is due to end in 2021, despite his contract reportedly having a break clause that would allow the Spaniard to leave at the end of this season.

This comes following the Citizens’ shock 3-2 loss to Wolves on Friday night which means the reigning back to back Premier League champions are now 14 points behind league leaders and rivals Liverpool, who also have a game in hand.

With the lack of success in the league so far, rumours have circulated that Guardiola is likely to leave the club at the end of the year but Soriano is adamant that the former Barcelona manager is going to see out the contract that he signed just last year.

Soriano, who is the CEO of Manchester City, has come out and stated that Guardiola has said that he will not leave and will honour his contract and that only when the time is right, the 48-year-old can leave.

Guardiola, a former Barcelona midfielder, joined the Manchester club in 2016 following a successful and trophy-laden three-year stint at German giants Bayern Munich.

Despite struggling in his first season where he was unable to lift any silverware for the first time in his career, he has led City to 7 trophies in a two-year spell.

Guardiola helped City win back to back league, EFL Cup and Community Shield titles and added an FA Cup trophy last season.

Manchester City in the last two seasons under Guardiola have been the most dominant side in Premier League history having amassed 198 points in two seasons combined.

The quality of football that Guardiola has brought to the Premier League has influenced English football tremendously and has been a joy to watch with players such as Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling shining under the Spaniard.

With the league out of reach, Manchester City will turn their focus on the Champions League – an important reason for the acquisition of Guardiola in 2016.

The Manchester City boss has yet to win a Champions League without the help of Lionel Messi and co. and will look to prove doubters wrong this year.

The Citizens will face Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid in the round of 16 in a bid to win their first-ever European trophy in the club’s history

Despite an end of year exit looking likely, the bookies have Guardiola at 50/1 for him to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post.
