Pep Guardiola makes U-turn on early retirement

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says the wealth of experience garnered from previous managerial jobs better equipped him for the top job at City and he might stay in management longer than he had anticipated.

Guardiola, 49, who recently signed a two-year contract extension with city, has spent five years at the club, his longest spell in charge of a club since he began his managerial career in 2008.

Guardiola managed Barcelona from 2008 to 2012 and spent three years in charge of Bayern Munich before joining City, who he has guided to two Premier League titles, three League Cups and an FA Cup since his arrival in 2016.

“Of course I am better now, definitely. Experience helps you – especially the way I live my profession,” Guardiola, who signed a new two-year contract in November, told the City website.

“Before I thought I would retire soon, now maybe I am thinking I might retire older. 50 already, it is a nice age!”
