Man City coach Pep Guardiola changing retirement plans

He is thinking about staying in the game for longer than first planned

Man City coach Pep Guardiola says he’s thinking about coaching for longer than he had planned. The former Barca and Bayern boss, who turns 50 on Jan 18, indicated previously he didn’t want to stay in the game for too long as he has other interests he’d like to pursue. However after extending his contract at City to 2023, he has admitted that he thinks retirement is still some way off.

“Of course I am better now, definitely. Experience helps you - especially the way I live my profession,” he told City’s website.

“Before I thought I would retire soon, now maybe I am thinking I might retire older. 50 already, it is a nice age!”

He also spoke about the unpredictability of the Premier League.

"So, in the Premier League, every game is so tough and it is better to be calm. The real Premier League, the people I spoke to before I landed here, said everyone can lose to everyone. I didn't see this until now,” explains the tactical schemer.

"Now is the first time when I see in the Premier League, one team is able to lose or win seven, and after draw, and after lose. The results are unpredictable."
