“Situations change a lot” — Pep Guardiola provides timid response over Manchester City future



| Last Updated:


Pep Guardiola has opened up on his Manchester City future after recently hinting at extending his contract at the Etihad.

The City boss has been peppered with questions regarding his future at the club after the recent news that Jurgen Klopp will leave Liverpool at the end of the season. Guardiola will become the Premier League’s longest tenured active manager when he does.

Last week Guardiola hinted at extending his contract when his current deal expires in 2026, but has since admitted that “football situations change a lot”. The Catalan has already been on the touchline at City for nearly a decade.

In a recent press conference however, Guardiola shied away from revealing too much when it comes to his long-term future at the club.

“I try to do my best during this season,” he said. “And this time together, and hopefully, I don’t know.

“At the end, what we are doing is trying to do our best when we are involved, when we are here. I’m not thinking much about what we’ll leave for the next people who are going to be in charge.

“I don’t know. I’m so concerned and focused about the day-by-day and after I don’t know.”

“I think we have time, we have time. Now I feel really good, like always I have been, but in football situations change a lot.

“Still I have my opinion that when you have one year and a half left on your contract, it’s a lot, a lot of time in world football. We take time, we have time.”

Guardiola has plenty to focus on during the current campaign, as his side are currently five points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool after 20 games. Jurgen Klopp’s men are unbeaten in their last ten games in all competitions.

The Blues are still in the running for the FA Cup and the Champions League, looking ahead to showdowns with Luton Town and FC Copenhagen respectively.

Next up for the Premier League champions is a visit from strugglers Burnley as the Clarets look to pull themselves out of the bottom-three.
