Guardiola is defiant about not leaving Manchester City unless sacked.
City won two Premier League titles – successively and this season, City is second on the Premier League table.
Therefore, there have been rumours circulating that Pep might want to leave Manchester City earlier than stated in the deal (which is currently till 2021) – taking the help of a break clause in the contract.
Before Saturday’s home game with Crystal Palace, Guardiola said: “Unless they sack me, I am staying, 100%.”
“It’s not because we have won the last two games,” Guardiola added. “Even if it was going bad, I’m not going anywhere.
“No manager wins all the time. I enjoy working with these players. We’ve lost some games so it is simple, we need to work out what we can do better.”
Pep turns 49 today, 23 years younger than Roy Hodgson – who is 71 presently. Pep talks about coaching at that age.
“I think when you are training at 72, it must be boring at home,” he said.
“Our job is nice. You are working with young people, athletes, in competition. Every game is different. Maybe that’s why Roy and the other older managers do it. I am not going to retire next week or next year but I don’t think I will still be a manager at that age.”
