Pep Guardiola rubbished Rumors about Joining MC
Pep Guardiola rubbished the rumours of him being in talks with the English Premier League side Manchester City.
The man who is in charge of Manchester City at the moment, Manuel Pellegrini, is close to getting axed if the news coming through the sources are credible.
But, Guardiola has shown disinterest in taking the City job in case Pellegrini is indeed shown the door.
Guardiola’s current deal at Bayern keeps him at the club for one more season after this one.
The Spaniard was thought to be going to get an extension, but, the Chief Executive of Bayern said a few days ago that the club was not willing to rush the new deal.
That created a few doubts in the minds of the people and that’s why, it was speculated that Guardiola might accept the lucrative offer made by City.
According to Guardiola though, neither has he been approached by City nor does he want to be approached. He would be more than happy to finish his contract with the Bundesliga Champions.
Talking to the media last evening, Guardiola said, “Nobody has tried to contact me and I am not looking for an away move either at this point of time. I don’t want to leave Bayern before the expiration of my contract. I’m only thinking about helping this club develop over the next year or so.”
Guardiola is arguably the best manager in the world at the moment and if he joins City, his tussle with Jose Mourinho, the Chelsea manager, would be very, very interesting.
Guardiola though is a lot younger than Mourinho, but, he is equally as wily as the Portuguese and has had quite a bit of success with Barcelona and with Bayern too.
Guardiola is in his second season at Bayern.
