According to a report from the Daily Mirror, a Man City club source can confirm that manager Pep Guardiola will take charge of the Sky Blues when the season restarts – even despite the recent passing of his mother due to infection.
Guardiola’s mother Dolors Sala Carrio tragically passed away last month as a result of the recent pandemic, but a club source has since confirmed that the City boss intends to plough through and resume his managerial role once the Premier League season makes a full return.
The City boss is still mourning the loss of his departed mother but will apparently take full charge upon the campaign’s restart – with the Spaniard speaking to director of football Txiki Begiristain, certain players and the coaching staff before his arrival.
Indeed, the 49-year-old is ‘putting things in place‘ for his proposed return – potentially highlighting a boost for the Sky Blues that we will not be without our manager once football makes a comeback around the proposed June marker.
Do you think the proposed June football restart is a good idea?
Guardiola was devastated when his 82-year-old mother passed away in Barcelona on April 6, but our manager’s resolve remains strong and he reportedly has every intent of seeing the season out at the Etihad Stadium.
Since signing on the dotted line at Eastlands, Guardiola has guided us to every single domestic honour – including two Premier League titles, three Carabao Cups, two Community Shields and an FA Cup triumph.
Taking this into account, the news that he intends to return despite recent tragic events could be a significant boost for us.
