Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will reportedly step down as head coach of the Citizens at the end of the 2024-2025 season.
Guardiola, 52, confirmed himself to be the best head coach in the world currently managing when his City side completed a historic treble, beating Inter Milan 1-0 in the Champions League final on Saturday.
Pep Guardiola set to leave Etihad Stadium in two years
According to the Guardian’s Jamie Jackson, the Spaniard has all but made his mind up that he will leave Manchester in 2025, meaning his spell at the Etihad Stadium will come to a total of nine years.
The Catalan moved to City in 2016 from German giants Bayern Munich and there was a strong expectation amongst the media and pundits alike that just as in Bavaria, Guardiola would not extend his contract beyond the three-year term he had agreed to.
Guardiola is also reportedly still hopeful his captain Ilkay Gundogan will stay at the club, despite interest from Barcelona, Arsenal, and Saudi Arabia in the midfielder.
