I’m Closer To Leaving Than Staying At Man City – Guardiola

The manager of Manchester City, Pep Guardiola has declared that he is “closer to leaving than staying” with the Premier League champions after he ruled the league for yet another time. 

Guardiola made this declaration on Sunday after a 3-1 win over West Ham saw them win the title for the fourth consecutive year.

Africa Today News, New York reports that the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has now won the English top flight six times.

Guardiola has one year left to run on his contract at the Etihad and he said he has yet to decide on his future.

“The reality is, I’m closer to leaving than to staying,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s eight years; it will be nine. Right now, my feeling is I want to stay next season. We talked with the club. We have time to talk next season because I have to see the players as well; if they follow me, they follow us.”

City entered the EPL’s final day two points ahead of Arsenal, knowing that a victory would yield yet another trophy. And to get that victory — plus a celebratory pitch invasion — it hardly had to fret or sweat.

Precisely 78 seconds after kickoff, Phil Foden blasted City into the lead. Sixteen minutes later, Foden doubled the lead, and pushed West Ham seemingly out of sight.

The Hammers responded with a bicycle-kick goal out of nothing just before halftime — and suddenly, tentatively, minor doubts surfaced. But Rodri, another Man City protagonist, erased them in the 59th minute, and restored City’s comfort.

Arsenal, playing simultaneously 200 miles south in London, beat Everton. But the Gunners, who’d pushed City to the wire, were powerless — because City had been charging toward the finish line, unbeaten in all competitions since a Dec. 6 loss at Aston Villa.
