Bad for Man United: Pep Guardiola confirms 10-year Man City plan

Man City vs Man United

Following Man United’s 2-1 win over Liverpool, the Premier League is likely to finish with the two Manchester clubs in first and second place.

Man City have been a shoo-in for the title for months, as Pep Guardiola’s side have been the best team in the land.

But the battle for second spot continues to be highly contested. United are now five points clear of Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola: 10-year Man City plan

Man City supporters are enjoying fresh quotes from Pep Guardiola this weekend.

Guardiola has given an interview with South American network DirecTV Sport, and he’s spoken about spending a decade at the Etihad Stadium:

I have discovered that Manchester City is a much bigger club that people outside think it is. It does not have a history behind it at the level of titles – but it does have the desire to become winners.

I do not rule out continuing to lead in 10 years. It will depend how I feel and if they want me.

It also depends on my family. I am not alone. I cannot live without my family. I will not go somewhere alone.

Guardiola is currently under contract until 2019, although City will look to lock their manager done a new deal in the summer.

Stoke vs Man City

Champions-elect Manchester City travel to Stoke for their Premier League clash on Monday night.

City suffered a surprise 2-1 home defeat to Basel last week in the Champions League. Gabriel Jesus gave City the lead before the Swiss side turned the game around.

Despite defeat, Guardiola’s side progress to the quarter finals, having won the first leg 4-0 in Switzerland.

City’s current Premier League away form is questionable, with one win in their last four league games on the road.

Last time out Stoke held Southampton to a 0-0 draw at St Mary’s. Paul Lambert’s side have drawn four and lost one of their last five.
