Premier League giants, Manchester City could not calmly question their coach, Pep Guardiola. Although the former Barcelona tactician is still under contract with the club until 2021, the fact is that Pep could leave the Etihad Stadium, because of a clause contained in his contract at an English club.
It’s undeniable, Pep Guardiola’s presence at Etihad since 2016 has increasingly changed the face of Manchester City for the better. So far, the Spanish national coach has donated a total of seven titles from various events. In the last two seasons, Guardiola made Manchester City the reigning Premier League champions.
This remarkable achievement from the Spanish manager was also seen in the 2017/18 season, when he won his first Premier League title, he managed to bring Manchester City to finish with 100 points. While last season, they managed to win the title again, even though there was Liverpool who appeared superior and only swallowed just one defeat throughout the season.
Actually, in the transfer market last summer, there was news that said that Pep Guardiola was in demand by Juventus, which was then abandoned by Max Allegri. But the seriousness of Manchester City to maintain it makes Guardiola not set foot from the Etihad Stadium. But that does not mean Pep cannot go, City could lose the Spanish manager because of a clause in his contract.
Sportsmail reports that Guardiola could leave Manchester City if a team is able to fulfill its release clause. From this report, another rumor developed about the next Manchester City coach. It was also stated that Manchester City had already set up horses if they had indeed lost Pep Guardiola, they would be eyeing several names, especially Mauricio Pochettino.
As is known, the Argentine manager is currently unemployed, starting from a few weeks ago because Tottenham was fired following a series of bad results at the start of this season. His own position was replaced by former Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho.
Indeed, during dealing with Tottenham, he never offered a title. However, last season, he managed to deliver the Lilywhites to reach the European Champions League final. In the process, Tottenham managed to win over Manchester City and Ajax.
