Pep Guardiola confirms Man City exit date and explains international plans

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed his plans after his time at City comes to an end.

Guardiola's contract expires in 2023, after seven years at the Etihad Stadium, and the Spaniard has dropped a hint that he will walk away from the club.

The 50-year-old began his coaching career in 2007, and he has since had spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich before arriving at City in 2016.

Guardiola has experienced one of the most successful coaching careers of all time.

However, when his contract expires in 2023, he has suggested that he will take a break from football.

"After seven years at Man City, I think I'll have a break, stop for a while, see what we've done, review inspirations," he told ESPN Brazil.

"And, in this process, I'd like to coach a national team, South America, European, play a Copa America, I want this experience.

"A national team will be the next step. Yes, It's the next step.

"I believe [on Brazil] that the coach of the Brazilian team will always be Brazilian, I don't see a foreigner in teams like Brazil.

"After I stop coaching, I'm going to look for another job, and then another, and then another. And this will bring me money, as I will always be improving."

Guardiola signed a contract extension with City last November.

“The challenge for us is to continue improving and evolving, and I am very excited and about helping Manchester City do that," he said after City announced the deal.

Guardiola has claimed three Premier League titles, four Carabao Cups, and an FA Cup.

However, Guardiola was brought in to win City the Champions League, an accolade that has so far evaded the blue side of Manchester.
