Manchester City has already peaked under Pep Guardiola according to former Manchester City player.
Pep Guardiola who has entered into his fifth campaign in charge at Manchester City failed to take City past the quarter-final stage of the Champions League in his prior four seasons.
Former City midfielder Dietmar Hamann believes the 49-year old kept his job due to some Barcelona influence in the boardroom at the Etihad.
“If you look at their record in the Champions League, any other manager would’ve been in big bother,” the German told talkSPORT
“Obviously he’s got some Barcelona history in the boardroom and maybe that’s why he’s still there.
“He didn’t reach a final with Bayern Munich or Man City – and if you look at the teams who did, they don’t have the same funds.
“It’s simply not good enough. If you look at the teams who beat them, I just wonder what has to happen for them to make a change.
“We don’t like managers getting sacked, but I think any other manager would be in big bother.”
“Historically, he was at Munich for three years and he improved the team, but the players were happy when he left because he was so demanding,” Hamann added.
“I think a manager like Guardiola can’t be at a club for more than four or five years.
“He’s done that at Man City and if you see the players they bring in, there is no continuity and I don’t see them improving enough with the money they’ve spent.
“I think they’ve peaked under Guardiola, I don’t see them winning the Premier League or the Champions League in the next few years.”
