Chelsea vs Man City: Guardiola changes mind on early retirement

Manchester City Manager, Pep Guardiola, has admitted that he wants to remain in administration even longer than he had previously expected.

Guardiola turns 50 this month and has previously hinted that he’s not expecting a long career, as he has other life priorities.

But, having recently renewed his contract with City to the summer of 2023, Guardiola now thinks that retirement is a long way off.

“Experience helps you, especially the way I live my profession.

“Before, I thought I was going to retire soon. Now I’m thinking I’m going to retire older. So, I don’t know,” Guardiola said ahead of their trip to Chelsea.

The Spaniard has won 29 major trophies in a fine managerial career that also includes spells in charge of Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Guardiola is now into his fifth season at City, making it his longest tenure in management after three years at Barca and four with Bayern.
