Guardiola’s Man City stint
Pep Guardiola has been on Manchester City’s books for around three and a half years now.
In that time Guardiola has turned the Sky Blues into one of the most terrifying attacking forces in Europe.
City have won the Premier League title in the last two seasons, amassing the two highest points totals ever in single PL campaigns, 100 in the 2017/18 campaign and 98 last term.
Man City also become the first male English side to win the domestic treble last season.
But after all City’s success, they have fallen short of their own expectations in 2019/20.
The Citizens are currently 14 points off league leaders Liverpool with their PL title hopes fading away with each passing week.
Guardiola on his Man City contract
And with Guardiola having around 18 months left on his current deal, there has been speculation around his future, as per Sky Sports.
But the City boss has recently stated that he would like to stay at City ‘as much as possible’. When speaking about his contract, Guardiola has this to say:
“I think in football one-and-a-half years is a lot of time for a manager.
“We’ll have to see altogether how it works, what is going on. I’ve said many times how incredibly good it is for me here and of course I would like to stay as much as possible.
“So that is my desire, but I want to be sure this is the best for the club, that they want me to stay longer.
“It would be five years at one club and in this competition that is many, many years, so that’s why it’s better to be sure your decision is perfect for both sides.
“There’s no rush. It’s not finishing in three or four months and the club is working perfectly in all departments, so it’s not a problem, honestly.” As quoted by Sky Sports News.
Man City vs Leicester
As mentioned above, City are currently 14 points adrift of table-topping Liverpool.
However, the Manchester powerhouse can gain some ground on their title rivals on Saturday.
Liverpool are not in league action this weekend as they are competing in the Club World Cup.
So, should City see off 2nd place Leicester in Saturday’s late PL kick-off, they will reduce the gap between themselves and Liverpool to 11 points.
