BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Pep Guardiola says he still hasn’t decided whether he wants to continue coaching Barcelona beyond this season.
The 41-year-old Guardiola, who has won 13 out of a possible 16 titles since taking over the European champions nearly four seasons ago, says he needs to “find the motivation to continue, and it still isn’t clear to me.”
Guardiola signed consecutive one-year extensions after initially agreeing to a two-year deal. He says the club hasn’t given him an ultimatum, adding: he would have liked to have made his decision earlier.
Guardiola’s position has become a distraction for the Spanish champions because he had agreed to extensions by this stage of the season in the past two years.
