Soccer: Pep Guardiola is about to say goodbye to ManCity


Eight points after five games and 13th place in the Premier League standings. No, we’re not talking about Southampton or Burnley, but Manchester City title contenders and their successful manager Pep Guardiola (49). With a 1-1 draw against West Ham, City left the counters for the third time. “We have already lost seven points, which is a lot,” said Guardiola himself after the London game. For him it is the worst start to the season in his coaching career so far. This is after conceding five goals for the first time against Leicester City (5-2 home defeat).

Guardiola’s game plan for this season only partially plays a role. There appears to be a match every three days – a heavy burden for players who have already had a short break after last season. Injuries among players are a greater risk and City have some regular players, including Sergio Agüero (32), Gabriel Jesus (23) and Benjamin Mendy (26), who are missing.
