Perhaps few had stopped at this point, but Pep left many ‘frozen’ by referring to his future ‘retirement’ in the world of football. The Catalan Josep Guardiola, coach of the Manchester City, has revealed how much longer he hopes to continue his successful career on the bench, in statements published this Sunday by English media.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach, about to turn 50 (January 18), he had previously indicated that he did not plan to extend his football career excessively, having other interests in mind that he would like to pursue.
However, after recently extending his contract with the British club for two more seasons, until June 2023, Guardiola now admits, in statements released by the British media today, that he feels that withdrawal is still far away.
“Experience helps you, especially the way I live this profession”, said.
“Before I thought I would retire soon. Now I think I will retire older. So I do not know”, admitted the coach when asked about the press, at the gates of the game on Chelsea and Manchester City.
After four years at the helm of Barca and three years coaching Bayern, the Catalan coach is now entering what will be his fifth season at the helm of City, with whom he has won eight trophies to date, including two championship titles in league.
On the nature of the Premier League, Guardiola reflected that in this competition “The results are unpredictable” and noted that each match is “Very hard”, with what “It is better to be calm”. Now just think about football.
