Pep Guardiola, Manchester City manager, has made a vow not to “betray” the club when the time for him to leave finally comes.
Guardiola has remained tight-lipped about his next move when his contract runs out in 2023.
There has been speculation the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss could work with City’s sister club New York City FC in Major League Soccer or take on a national team job.
But whatever he decides, Guardiola, 51, insists he will put City first.
“I won’t think about the future when I still have the contract I have.
“I’m not good enough to think far, far away. My future always depends on results, I’m not concerned. I’m good here, comfortable, they gave me everything.
“My decision will be taken with the club, I have a lot of confidence. They gave me everything so I cannot betray them. Together we took decisions to come here and to extend the contract two times and it will be the same now, it depends how they feel about me, how I feel myself in the club,”
Guardiola told a news conference on Friday.
Guardiola has won eight major trophies for City since he arrived at the Etihad in 2016, including three Premier League titles.
This is also the longest he has spent at one club since becoming a manager.
