Will Pep Step Away From City This Season?

Pep Guardiola has suggested that Manchester City could well be his last club and although he has a three year contract, William Hill are offering just 11/2 that he leaves the club this season while he has been cut from 50/1 to 40/1 to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job.


Mike Phelan and Walter Mazzarri are the 2/1 joint favourites to be next out.


“Pep has been looking increasingly tetchy as things have not gone his way and while it is still a relatively long price that he goes this year, the odds will only get shorter if his side continue to be so inconsistent,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
