Manchester City Manager Pep Guardiola has denied reports indicating that he will walk away from the club.
The latest reports indicate that the former Barcelona boss has a break clause in his contract something he denied with the Spaniard insisting that he will see out the remaining year of his deal at a minimum.
And responding to reports he and the club could go separate ways as a result of an agreement inserted into the contract he signed in 2018, he said: “It’s not true. I spoke about that a few weeks ago-about my intentions for the club.”
“I want to stay; I don’t have any reasons to move. I am incredibly satisfied to work with this club, with these players.
“I like to have this challenge; I love to be in this position. If the club wants me next season I want to be here 100 percent. I want to live in this city because I know lovely people here and I want to work and live with them and I want to be here.
“If they (the club’s hierarchy) decide the results are getting worse then they are going to take a decision, that’s normal. It’s not because I am friends with Txiki (Begiristain, sporting director) that I am going to stay for the rest of my life. I am here because I (keep) winning.”
City’s ambition to defend their title has looked bleak in recent weeks after their defeat to rivals Manchester United last week and with Arsenal up in their roster, there are rumors that the club might part ways with Guardiola with Juventus being his possible destination.
