Pep Guardiola says he would have been sacked by Barcelona or Bayern Munich if he had delivered the kind of season he has had at Manchester City.
The Catalan has endured the first trophyless campaign of his managerial campaign and is focused on securing a third-placed finish by winning the club’s two remaining fixtures.
“Pressure is what I had when I arrived in Barcelona, when I had nothing to defend [myself with]. At that club if in six months you don’t win you are really out, like Barcelona or Bayern Munich, there you have to win by far,” reasoned Pep. “If not, they don’t give you a second chance. Here they gave me a second chance and we will try to do it. In my situation at a big club: I’m sacked. I’m out. Sure. Definitely. At the clubs I worked at before I am not here, but here we have a second chance and we will try to do it better than this season.”
