Guardiola considering another sabbatical

Guardiola plotting to take sabbatical despite two-year deal at Manchester City

June 12, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The Spanish boss was linked to Juventus for a couple of weeks, but it seems that he has different plans for his immediate future.

Manchester City fans may have reasons to worry, since the man that has given the team two Premier League titles in a row might not be around for long.

Sources consulted by the Daily Star have revealed that Pep Guardiola, who's contract with the Citizens expires in 2021, is considering to leave the club and enjoy a sabbatical. The Spanish boss did something of the sort back when his contract with Barcelona concluded. Back then, he used that year off to take German lessons, in order to facilitate communication with his players at Bayern München.

But before fans go out on a rage against Pep, the coach has told his inner circle there is one condition for him to make that decision: he must win the UEFA Champions League. If he can lead the Citizens to their first continental title, he would consider leaving the club to recharge his batteries, just like he did in 2012 with Barcelona.

Guardiola celebrates with his players after winning the 2018-19 Premier League title.

Guardiola has been a massive success with Manchester City, even after a slow start in the Premier League which saw him end his first season without winning any silverware. Pep has led Manchester City to six titles, including two Premier Leagues and two Carabao Cup wins. He's coached 170 games for the Citizens, with 121 of those ending in a win. 

Regardless of these accomplishments, Guardiola is desperate to win yet another UEFA Champions League title, and if he ends up doing so with the current EPL champions, he might just take a year off to celebrate on a high note.
