Pep Guardiola: Manchester City Boss Threatens to Quit Amid Title Challenge Against Arsenal
- Pep Guardiola has promised to leave Manchester City if he cannot motivate the team to more titles
- Guardiola recently admonished the team after a lacklustre first-half performance against Tottenham
- City are currently five points behind Arsenal as they seek to win a fifth title in six years
Manchester City's Head Coach Pep Guardiola has vowed to walk away from the club if a few things do not improve.
Guardiola gave a scathing interview on Thursday after his side came from two goals down to beat Tottenham Hotspur.
Despite the epic comeback, Guardiola was far from happy with his players, the staff and the fans urging them to keep the fire of previous seasons burning.
The Citizens are currently facing a run for their money to retain their Premier League title with Arsenal currently having a five-point lead.

The Spanish Head Coach has now admitted that he would be ready to leave if he cannot motivate his team enough
"I am here to motivate the team. I want to be here otherwise I would have not have signed a new contract earlier this season but if I lose the team, I lose something. I can not be here. The club has to move forward," as quoted by Goal.
Guardiola recently extended his contract to 2025. City's main ambition remains to win the Champions League. They will face RB Leipzig in the round of 16.
What Pep said after Tottenham win
Sports Brief had earlier reported that the Spanish Head Coach lashed into everyone in the club set up from his players to the staff to the fans.
Guardiola insisted that his side got lucky on the night and cannot beat Arsenal to the title if they kept playing like that.
"Today, we were lucky, but it wouldn't change, sooner or later we are again going to drop points. We are missing passion, fire and desire and to win from minute one. It's the same with our fans, they are silent for 45 minutes. They booed because we were losing, not because we played badly. I want my fans back; I want my fans here."
