Guardiola: Barca Or Bayern Would've Sacked Me By Now
Guardiola: Barca Or Bayern Would've Sacked Me By Now

Champions League qualification is all City have left to play for at the end of an uneven first season in charge for the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss, who will finish a campaign without a trophy for the first time in his career.
Both opponents are safe in mid-table, and Guardiola's top-four rival Arsene Wenger said on Monday "some teams are on holiday", but the City boss is not anticipating an easy ride against visitors who have gone nearly two months without a win. "I am not staying here because I am Pep or what I have done a long time ago".
"I never saw one player in my life go to the pitch and not try to win the game", he said. Pressure is what I had when I arrived in Barcelona with nothing to defend myself with. "Here I have a second chance and I will try to do it better next season".
"I would add that we hope that these brief and isolated incidents will not detract from the club's performance on a huge night in football", he added.
But saying: "At a big club, I'm sacked", isn't helpful to his cause - something he instantly realised at his news conference ahead of Tuesday's game with West Brom.
But, despite the massive investment, City is clinging to fourth place in the Premier League heading into the final week of the season; Arsenal is three points behind with two games remaining.
Yet that kind of form at previous clubs would have seen the axe wielded, Guardiola said. Ask Arsene not to me.
He said: "Yes because I have to win". They tend to struggle against the top-teams, not scoring in eight of their 11 meetings with the top-six this term and with four defeats form five winless matches away from the Hawthorns.
"He [Wenger] plays against Everton and Sunderland, no?" Both teams are done, no? Delph, though, is unlikely to play again this season because of a leg problem.
"I would like to be Chelsea right now".
"They'll spend more because of the competition to reach the Champions League". By playing down City's size he makes his failure to win a trophy more acceptable; as if it's normal for a club like City, even though they have spent so much money in pursuit of being the best.
