Pep Guardiola has previously discussed his post-Manchester City plans.

It is becoming more and more likely that Guardiola will not be staying on at the Etihad, even though he is determined to play out the remaining year of his contract. He’s anticipated to leave at the conclusion of the 2024–2025 campaign, as stated by the Daily Mail.

It appears likely that they will take a break from the game after managing continuously since 2013. However, he has stated that before ending his coaching career, he plans to move into managing the national team.

In response to an ESPN Brasil question in February regarding his remaining football goals, Guardiola said, “A national team.” To prepare for a World Cup or a European Championship, I would like to coach a national team. That’s what I would like to have.”

He did not specifically name any country, but it seems likely that it would be his native Spain. According to the Express, their current manager Luis de la Fuente is under contract through the end of the 2026 World Cup.

Guardiola went on to elaborate on his long-term goals, saying, “I don’t know who would want me! Like a club, a national team must want you to work for them. I want to experience what it’s like to be a spectator at a World Cup, Euro, Copa America, or any other sporting event.

“I’d like to have that. I would like to have managed in a World Cup, but I’m not sure when that would be—five, ten, or fifteen years from now.”

Speaking following City’s Premier League record-breaking fourth consecutive victory, Guardiola revealed very little. “The reality is I am closer to leaving than staying [after next season],” he stated. “After speaking with the club, I feel as though I want to stay at this time. I’ll be here for the upcoming season, and we can talk then. But we’ll see in eight or nine years.

“At this point, I’m not sure exactly why we should do it [the next season], as it’s hard to pinpoint once everything is finished. However, I am aware of the players and myself, so I know that once we get there, we’ll ask ourselves, “Why can’t we win today?” Why don’t we put in as much effort as we can to complete the tasks at hand? And I have no doubt that we will succeed.”

Guardiola also made a suggestion that he was ready to move on following their triple crown victory the previous year, saying, “After Istanbul, I said, ‘It’s over, there’s nothing left.'” But I’m still here because I have a contract.

“At times, I feel a little worn out, but other times, I enjoy myself and we’re having fun, winning games, and interacting well with new players. I begin to think, why don’t we try? Nobody has completed four consecutive moves. I believe it’s finished now, so what comes next?”
