Pep Guardiola tipped to leave Man City THIS season

Manchester City fans will be dreading the moment but one day Pep Guardiola will leave the club.

However, Sol Campbell believes he may not even last the upcoming Premier League season, which kicks off on Saturday.

Guardiola took charge of City in the summer of 2016 having left Bayern Munich. Like he’s done at Bayern Munich and Barcelona before that, Guardiola has achieved huge levels of success at City.

They’ve won six major trophies under his stewardship, including achieving the ‘domestic treble’ of lifting the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup in the 2018/19 season.

Last season was bad by his standards even though they took home the Carabao Cup for a third successive year.

But they lost their Premier League champions status to Liverpool, who won the crown with seven games to spare.

Guardiola’s side were beaten by Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-finals and also suffered a shock defeat to Lyon in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Starting his fifth season at City is actually the longest stint he’s had with a club as manager, having spent four seasons at Barca and three at Bayern.

And that’s why Campbell can’t see the City boss lasting much longer and thinks he could go before the 2020/21 campaign is out.

However, Campbell doesn’t believe Guardiola will be sacked by the club.

Speaking on the ‘Don’t @ Me’ segment of The Super Premier League Preview Show, he said: “When I look at what’s been happening in his history, four years at Barcelona, three years at Bayern Munich… is he going to last? I don’t think so, I think he’s going to go.”
