August 26, 2021

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has announced the date of his departure from the English team, as it will be his last season in England,indicating that he will head to coach the national teams in the future.
Last November, the 50-year-old Spanish coach extended his contract until the end of the 2022-2023 season, and with this deadline Guardiola will have spent seven seasons in Manchester City. It will be the longest period in which Pep remains with a single club.
Guardiola insisted that he should take a break from the strength of the English Premier League competitions, and revealed his intention that his next job could be with a national side in the future.
“I have to take a break after seven years in Manchester City, I need to stop to learn from other coaches, maybe coach a national team, I think the next step will be coaching a national team,” Guardiola said at an XP Investimentos event, on Wednesday.
Pep Guardiola trained Barcelona for 4 seasons and Bayern Munich for 3 seasons, and is considered one of the most successful coaches in the world.
Former midfielder Guardiola has won three league titles with City and as many with previous clubs Bayern Munich and Barcelona as manager. But the Champions League trophy has eluded him at City after he lifted two at Barca.
Guardiola also won six league titles and the 1992 European Cup with Barcelona as a player, having scored five goals in 47 internationals for Spain.
Guardiola took charge of Manchester City in 2016, and led the team to winning three titles in the Premier League, the FA Cup, and four consecutive titles in the League Cup.
