The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager, Pep Guardiola, is having a tough time at Manchester City. In an awkward post-match interview last night, he stated that he is arriving at the end of his coaching career and won’t be coaching at the age of 65. It looks like the man who won 14 trophies in four years at Camp Nou is not comfortable competing in the most competitive league.
