The future of Pep Guardiola is going to become an ongoing story until there is a definitive answer

As Manchester City had their parade through Manchester yesterday to celebrate their 23/24 achievements, another story began to play out in the background. Jack Gaughan reported yesterday for the Daily Mail that next season appears set to be the final season at Manchester City for Pep Guardiola. While there wasn’t a definitive answer in Gaughan’s report, it is clear that the future of Guardiola is going to an ongoing story until the City manager has made a definitive decision on his future.

It was included in Jack Gaughan’s report that sources believe that next season will be the last at the world champions for Pep Guardiola. Furthermore, Gaughan also reported that while Manchester City has received no indication on Guardiola’s future plans, the club fears that next season will be the final one with Guardiola in charge. Gaughan also reports that City want to extend Guardiola’s tenure at the club. He adds that City’s hierarchy will give Pep Guardiola time and space to make a decision on his future.

There is no doubt that speculation o. Guardiola’s future will continue. Until there is a definitive decision by Guardiola, it will likely be a story that rumbles on through the summer and into next season. Such is the stature of Pep Guardiola and his importance to Manchester City that is only natural. He has led Manchester City on an unprecedented era of dominance in English football. This season saw City claim a historic fourth consecutive Premier League title to add to their glittering array of silverware over the past 7 seasons.

All of Manchester City’s recent success has come under Guardiola’s tutelage. There is an argument that Pep Guardiola is the difference between Manchester City and their rivals. His ability to keep his squad coming back for more success is an integral part of his team’s success. This, coupled with his tactical brilliance as a manager, has made him, without a doubt, the best manager in world football.

Speculation on Pep Guardiola’s future is going to continue until there is a definitive answer on his future. The hope from Manchester City’s hierarchy and their fans is that Guardiola will continue on at the club after next season. But until a definitive answer is confirmed, there will likely be more updates on Guardiola’s future to come over the summer and through next season.
