Guardiola Clarifies Retirement Statement, Won’t Give Up On EPL Title

 

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has hinted that he is not retiring from coaching anytime soon.

Reports doing the rounds claim the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager was planning to call it quits with coaching.

But Guardiola has come out to debunk the reports.

"I am 45. I’m not going to retire in two or three years. I love my job, I'm in a perfect place to do my job, especially here in England," Guardiola said in his Thursday press conference ahead of Saturday's FA Cup third round clash away to West Ham.

"I am not going to train for 60 years, I want to do something else with my life. But now, I am not thinking about retiring, no."

Guardiola insista that City will not give up on any competition this season, despite trailing Chelsea by seven points in the Premier League.

"We’re going to fight for the rest of the titles. We fight in every game, good football or not good football, we try," he added.

"They are a Premier League team and after what happened in the last game with West Ham United, I will try to win the game."

On the availability of skipper Vincent Company and new signing Gabriel Jesus Guardiola said: "Vincent Kompany has started to train but he is not going to play tomorrow.

"Gabriel Jesus has arrived, he’s made two training sessions. This afternoon he will have the first training session with the team.

"Hopefully he can do what he’s done with the national team in Brazil and his old club."
