Guardiola's Man City exit date may now be decided after development - Mills

Danny Mills has suggested Pep Guardiola will quit Man City when his contract expires at the end of next season.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Man City and England defender delivered his verdict after Guardiola oversaw his 200th game in charge of the club.

As quoted by the Manchester Evening News (October 29), the Spaniard revealed he will likely not be in charge for another 200.

Guardiola marked the landmark with a dissapointing 2-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace.

Asked wether the City boss could quit in 2023, Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “Quite possibly, he’s said that already.

“It’s the longest stint he’s done [with one club] to this point.

“It depends on Pep and what he wants to do. It’s his choice, effectively. Man City are not going to get rid of him, nobody will want him to leave. I guess it’s about having a succession plan.

“We’ve seen him before take six months off or have a sabbatical with a year out.

“He’s clearly made enough money up to this point. He’s doing the job now because he loves it but it’s intense. He might just turn around and go ‘You know what, I fancy a break and maybe a fresh challenge somewhere else’.”

Guardiola has won three Premier League titles, an FA Cup and four Caraba Cups as Man City manager.

The Champions League still alludes the club after their defeat to Chelsea in last season’s final in Lisbon.
