Guardiola provides update on Aguero's injury ahead of tournament

City must confront painful reality of life after Guardiola

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola won't rule out his team collapsing next season - like Chelsea.

Guardiola famously left the then European champions Barcelona in 2012 in need of a sabbatical after four hugely successful years in charge at the Nou Camp.

The 47-year-old Spaniard has another season to run on the three-year contract he agreed when taking over at City in 2016, and is widely expected to agree a 12-month extension this summer.

The Spaniard is predicted to increase his present three-year contract at Metropolis by an additional 12 months till 2020, however will exclusively keep so long as he feels in a position to give every part to the job.

When asked if Aguero's season with City was over, Guardiola said: "Here, yeah".

'I've yet one more yr, so I'm not ending now. "What I felt this season is something fantastic". I feel comfortable being here. It also depends on my energy and strength to keep going. We're going to resolve what's greatest for the membership, for everyone. He said he doesn't know if the rumours are true, but he gave a lot of praise to the Spanish global and called him a top player that was a joy to manage.

'You feel the team are an wonderful group of guys, the players and the staff, but you can lose that.

The PFA announced on Wednesday an 11-man squad voted for by every player from the 20 clubs in the Premier League ahead of the PFA's annual awards ceremony in London on Sunday, April 22. All the pieces's good.

The following season, their response to securing the title with four games to spare was to suffer three successive league defeats. But a good argument to keep going is the records.

"But City have dropped only five points at home all season and there's still a chance to turn a title-winning campaign into a record breaking one". He's in Barcelona. The first part (of the rehabilitation) is there'. 'I used to be not ready. What we need to do is already done. It could be uncomfortable to complete in a nasty approach. Firstly because the cherries are 11th; secondly, their last two confrontations puts a lot of pressure on their shoulders to get a result. At all times there must be a goal. I am very excited for that, but first it's about focus and winning points.

"What we have done, [City predecessors] Roberto [Mancini] and Manuel [Pellegrini] did it".

'Now let's have a look at how we deal with it. He has provided six assists in the Premier League in 2017-18, his best ever return in a top-flight season.

Guardiola feels they could provide good motivation for the closing weeks of the season.

'Back-to-back titles the last decade you've seen how hard it is. That is why it is a problem. "We are going to fight to get him to the World Cup". We have to do the same, if you rest'.

Pep Guardiola has confirmed he will hold talks with Manchester City's hierarchy at the end of this season regarding his future with the Premier League champions.

'It is 4 or 5 weeks, ' he added.

It means promising young players such as Phil Foden, the midfielder who helped England win the Under-17 World Cup last October, are likely to have to wait for the opportunity to gain Premier League experience.
