Will the Premier League become more competitive when Pep leaves?
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has insisted that he feels comfortable in his position, and he backed this up by signing a new contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2025. He has also said that he would consider a return to Barcelona, which he managed from 2008 to 2012. Before joining Manchester City, he also managed Bayern Munich from 2013 to 2016.
Since joining the Premier League, he has won the title on four separate occasions – in the 2017/18, 2018/19, 2020/12 and 2021/22 seasons, making him one of the most successful Premier League managers of all time.
