Pep Guardiola Discloses When He Will Retire Amid Man City's Premier League Slump
- Guardiola has enjoyed a successful managerial career that has seen him win multiple titles
- The Spaniard has won five Premier League titles since he joined Manchester City in 2016
- Guardiola has an active contract that will keep him at the Etihad Stadium until 2025
Pep Guardiola has finally opened up on his retirement plans amid Manchester City's Premier League struggles.
The Spaniard is widely regarded as one of the greatest managers of his generation after an illustrious career at Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Man City.
Guardiola has won multiple titles during his managerial reign, with much of his success coming at the Etihad Stadium.
The former Barca boss has won five Premier League titles since taking charge of City back in 2016.
Last season proved to be his most successful at the club, having guided them to a historic treble, which included a Champions League title.
When will Pep retire?
The 52-year-old has astonishingly claimed that he will 'retire' from management if he leads City to another treble this season.
Pep expressed this after his side's Premier League clash against Aston Villa on Wednesday night, where they lost 1-0.
"If we win the treble this season, I'll retire. That's for sure," Goal quoted Guardiola saying.
"I know it is extremely difficult, how many incredible teams have been in England and just one with Sir Alex Ferguson has done it and ourselves last season," he added.
Pep's claim came at a time when the Cityzens are struggling for form in the EPL, with the reigning English champions winless in four consecutive matches.
According to Brfootball, their latest slip-up at Villa Park saw them drop to fourth in the Premier League standings with 30 points.
