Pep Guardiola has told Manchester City players that he is fully committed to the club and will stay even if the club is sentenced to drop to League Two – the fourth tier of English football.
Raheem Sterling is also committed to City despite UEFA’s decision to ban the English champion from competing in European competitions for the next two seasons due to serious breaches of fair play financial rules.
City will appeal the ruling to the Sports Arbitration Court.
Following UEFA’s decision on Friday, there have been many rumors that the Spanish coach will decide to leave City.
But Guardiola has firmly said he will not leave the club no matter what league he plays.
“Look, I’m going to stay here, no matter what league we play. Even if they send us to League Two, I’ll still be here. This is the time to stay together, ”Guardiola told Man City players, according to Sky Sports.
Guardiola’s contract with City expires at the end of the 2020/21 season and he has no intention of terminating him.
The 49-year-old has never terminated a contract with any of the clubs he has managed.
