On November 23, Manchester City announced the renewal of Guardiola’s contract until 2025. However, the Catalan coach wanted to downplay the importance of this contract extension.
“It’s just a piece of paper,” Pep said in the run-up to Manchester City’s match against Everton, as his team could not get past the equalizer the next day, despite the fact that Haaland scored again.
He added, “As soon as I feel that something is broken, I will resign or not renew my contract again. I keep saying I won’t be (at Manchester City) for a long time like Ferguson and Arsene Wenger (at Manchester United and Arsenal).”
He continued, “In the end, what matters are the results. I will not end this contract when we are tired of each other. When you win a lot, situations are easier to handle. But on the other hand, it’s like, ‘Oh, we have to do it again,’ it’s complicated.”
These words spread fear in the hearts of Manchester City fans, who then attacked him on social media.
Manchester City ranks second in the Premier League standings, with 36 points, a full 6 points behind leaders Arsenal, with 43 points, after passing through 16 rounds of the competition.
