Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will reportedly decide his long-term future during the upcoming World Cup.
The Lowdown: Uncertainty over Guardiola’s future
In May, it was reported that the 51-year-old had been in talks over a potential contract extension with the Citizens until 2025. However, it now appears that some behind-the-scenes details have emerged regarding the manager’s stance on his future.
The Latest: Guardiola to decide his future soon
According to a recent tweet from journalist Jack Gaughan, Guardiola is “expected to” decide what his future with Man City will look like during the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.
Included in the tweet was an article that Gaughan wrote for the Daily Mail, which adds that ‘there are those around the first team who believe they are working for a manager who does not appear ready to wave goodbye’ to the club.
A further line adds that City are ‘planning ahead on the assumption’ that Guardiola will stay.
The Verdict: Fingers crossed for City
Since the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager took charge of City, he has overseen 372 matches with the club across all competitions.
Across that time, City have won 275 games, drawing 43 and losing 54, picking up numerous domestic trophies along the way.
Do you think Guardiola will sign a new deal at City?
Given how successful Guardiola has been with the club, it would be hard to imagine that any person connected with City wouldn’t want the manager to continue his journey with them and sign a new deal.
With the Premier League set to take a break while the World Cup goes on, it’s safe to say that lots of City fans will have their fingers crossed that Guardiola will come out the other side of it having decided to pledge his future to the English champions.
