Pep Guardiola provides insight into Manchester City future during phone call with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp



| Last Updated:


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp received insight into the future of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City following a phone call between the pair, according to reports.

The legendary Premier League managerial duo faced off for what is highly likely to be the final time in the English top-flight on Sunday afternoon, playing out a hotly-contested 1-1 draw at Anfield in their respective pursuits of the division’s trophy.

John Stones opened the scoring for Manchester City, before a second-half onslaught from the hosts resulted in an Alexis Mac Allister strike from the penalty spot to level the game, and share the points on Merseyside.

But a new report has revealed that the trend of sharing has extended off the field between the two clubs, and concerning the highly-secretive future intentions of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

The Catalan coach will enter the final year of contract at Manchester City next season, and despite there being little in the way of reports concerning what his intentions may be, it appears as though the secret could lie in the head of Jurgen Klopp.

According to the information of Manchester City insider ‘Tolmie’s Hairdoo’ on X, Pep Guardiola shared his own perspective regarding a potential Etihad Stadium exit in the coming years with Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp.

The report details that Guardiola had ‘telephoned’ the outgoing Liverpool manager upon hearing the news of the German’s departure this summer, before offering an ‘insight’ into his own future and what he may do in the years to come.

Pep Guardiola has long insisted that despite public pressure to come to a decision over his Manchester City future, both he and the club have plenty of time to reach a conclusion and decide whether to part ways or approach the decade landmark in charge of the club.

Speaking during a press conference earlier this year, Guardiola himself insisted on the amount of time available to both himself and the club, as he explained, “We have time… Now I feel really good, like always I have. But in football, situations change a lot.

“When you have one year and a half left on your contract, it’s a lot of time in world football. We have time… Normally the decisions are quick. I trust in my feelings and instinct, and every time they offer, my family is involved, but not much time.”

He continued, “When I feel that it’s OK, and I feel good, and they want me, OK… We can admit eight years is a lot of time, next season will be nine. I have to see the players, how is the behaviour, our standards, can we keep it, do the players follow you, am I tired or not, many things are involved.

“It’s not the same as extending after two years, than after nine. It’s completely different. But still I’m here sitting, I’m OK.”
