Coach Pep Guardiola: Leaving is closer than staying

Manchester City was crowned English Premier League champion for the fourth time in a row. Successful coach Guardiola wins his sixth title in eight years. De Bruyne: “I feel as good as the first time” >>>

His contract runs for one season only. The Spaniard said on Sky: “The truth is that I am closer to leaving than staying.” This applies to the next season until the summer of 2025.

Guardiola said: “It has been eight years, and it will be nine years after that. At the moment, I feel like I want to stay next season. During the season we can talk about the future. But after eight or nine years…” He moved to the island in the summer of 2016 after working at Bayern Munich, and has since won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League titles in 2023.

The FA Cup final against rivals Manchester United will be held at Wembley Stadium on Saturday (from 4 p.m./Live tape >>>), as in the previous year, the Nationals will win the national double.

“I know that no team in history – Gary Lineker told me, I didn't know – has won the Premier League and FA Cup double in a row,” Guardiola said of the importance of that. He wants to give his professionals two or three days to enjoy the tournament and then begin short preparations for the final.

Another master will slow down in his craft in the coming months. Jurgen Klopp earned an optional break from Liverpool with a 2-0 win over Wolves. “I can't wait for life, life after my career. Now let's see what it means for me,” the German said. After intense years in which the Champions League title in 2019 was the highlight, he “didn't want to do anything” at the moment.

Klopp praises his successor Arne Slott

For Klopp, this means traveling to the First Division final to support his former club Borussia Dortmund against Real Madrid from the stands and watching some European Championship matches “here and there”.

“Then go on vacation,” he announced. However, he is looking forward to a successful future for the Reds. “It feels like the beginning. Today I saw a team full of talent, youth, creativity, desire and greed. This is part of development, and this is what you need.” Klopp has previously praised his appointed successor, the Dutchman Arne Slot, in the highest voice.

A new era has now begun for Liverpool under Slott. “Imagine the next season starting and don't wait to see what happens.

“I welcomed the new coach the way you welcomed me,” Klopp asked. He has been at the helm of the Merseyside club for almost nine years. The Reds, who were meanwhile playing for the Championship, finished the season in third place in the league. On Sunday, there was audio of Klopp saying “You'll never walk alone again” and then he disappeared with his hand over his heart and a red jacket reading “I'll never walk alone again”.
