Pep Guardiola: “The Process Of My Goodbye Have Started Already”

After his Manchester City side beat Burnley 2-1, Pep Guardiola admitted to journalists THAT Manchester City could be one of the last teams he manages.
The Spaniard has enjoyed a very successful career in football, winning three La Liga titles and two Champions Leagues at Barcelona, three successive Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich before taking over from Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City in the summer.
However, after a shaky few months in Manchester, the manager has already admitted that he is already planning the end of his career:
“What I like is to imagine that the next step can be better – if not, I will not be here,”
“I feel that the the process of my goodbye has already started.”
Guardiola added: “I will not be a coach when I am 60 or 65 years old. Manchester City is three years, or maybe longer, but I am still approaching the end of my career as a manager – I am sure of that.”
Surprisingly, Sergio Agüero started on the bench against Burnley but was brought on along with David Silva after City had been reduced to 10 men in the first-half following Fernandinho’s red card. Gael Clichy put City ahead early on in the second half before Aguero doubled their lead. However, the Citizens were soon very nervous as Ben Mee pulled a goal back for Burnley 20 minutes from time.
