Soccer – Guardiola happy to have City backing

Pep Guardiola says he is determined to reward the faith Manchester City, who are 9/4 to win the 2017/18 Premier League title with bet365, have shown in him, claiming he would have been sacked by Bayern Munich and Barcelona if he had failed to win a trophy at those clubs. The Spaniard will finish a season without silverware for the first time in his coaching career having been highly successful in Germany and Spain previously. Guardiola admits he has underachieved this term and is glad to be at a club like City where he will get a “second chance” next season to right his wrongs. "In my situation at a big club, I'm sacked. I'm out,” he said. "If it is Barcelona and Bayern, you don't win and you are out. Here I have a second chance and I will try to do it better next season."
