Pep Guardiola claims he could retire this season as he admits Man City are “struggling”



Gustiola concedes that Manchester City are “struggling” and asserts he may retire this season.Following their loss to Aston Villa, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have gone four Premier League matches without a victory, and the Spaniard made an audacious proclamation regarding his future.Guardiola acknowledges the possibility that he may “retire” in the midst of Manchester City’s faltering title defense.

Since his arrival in 2016, the Spaniard has presided over an unprecedented period of triumph at the Etihad Stadium. His most recent Premier League triumph contributed to the historic treble of the previous season. He has won a total of five titles in the league.Guardiola stated prior to his squad’s midweek travel to Aston Villa that he might be forced to retire from managerial duties should City replicate the achievement. “I will retire if we win the treble this season,” the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager told Amazon Prime Video Sport.That is without a doubt true. It is exceedingly difficult to recall how many phenomenal teams have competed in England, yet only one, led by Sir Alex Ferguson and ours last season, has accomplished this feat.”Prepare thoroughly for the first game and our approach to it, as we discussed previously, followed by the second, and now the third. We shall see our level, and the level of the competition itself will determine yours; the opponent will prescribe the difficulty level; however, in September, October, and November, you should not be preoccupied with the title.


At Villa Park, Guardiola and City’s prospects of claiming another treble were severely damaged. They were doomed to defeat by Leon Bailey’s strike.This signifies that their streak of losing in the Premier League has surpassed one month. Guardiola’s squad have surged past Luton to move into fourth place, six points behind the current champions Arsenal, due to their dramatic late comeback.”The superior team prevailed,” the City manager conceded following Villa’s loss. “I told the players, ‘This is a common occurrence in football. “I am certain you attempted to win and desired to do so, as you have repeatedly demonstrated to me and everyone else.”


“At present, the outcomes are less favorable than they were previously [constantly].” I need to give it some thought. I must sleep and reflect before attempting to replicate what the participants [did] with this particular game.
