Guardiola "fully committed" to Manchester City
While star manager Pep Guardiola has an interest in one day coaching a national team, he insists he remains committed to Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola insists he is "fully committed" to Manchester City despite announcing his ambition to take an international job in the future. The City manager has enjoyed great success as a club coach with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and now at the Etihad Stadium, but he has suggested on more than one occasion that taking charge of a national side would appeal to him. It was a topic he returned to when speaking at the University of Liverpool this week, where Guardiola said: "Sooner or later it is going to happen, if I have chance with an international team."
City is my priority right now, says Pep
But the 47-year-old, who is under contract until 2021, is adamant those comments do not detract from his commitment to City, adding that he could even change his mind and remain in club management for the remainder of his career.
"I have said many times that I have a contract here and, if it is going well, I could extend my contract here," he told a news conference on Friday. "Everybody has dreams. When I was a little boy I had dreams. Some you accomplish, some you don't. Many things can happen. Maybe in the future it can happen [coaching a national team], maybe in the future I will change my mind. I am fully committed to my job here."
City travel to West Ham on Saturday as the Premier League leaders seek to continue their unbeaten start to the top-flight season.
PEP: Right now, I am only focused on winning the next game. If we focus on winning back to back titles, we forget what we need to do. There is no sense in talking about that. Some games we are going to lose and some we will win. Now comes the toughest part of the season. #WHUMCI— Manchester City (@ManCity) November 23, 2018
