Over the past 12 years, several managers took over the position of Manchester City head coach. Although all of those managers were successful on the domestic level, none of them were able to win the champions league. As a result, the management will be looking to hire a new head coach in an attempt to achieve this milestone. So, here are the Manchester City next manager odds.
Why The Citizens Might Need A New Manager?
Since Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan bought Manchester City in 2008, the main objective was to win the Champions League. Several managers have come and gone without achieving this milestone. For instance, Roberto Mancini guided the Citizens to Premier League glory in the 2011/ 2012 season. Also, Manuel Pellegrini managed to win one Premier League title and two League Cups in three seasons. However, both managers failed to win the most important title which is the Champions League.
As a result, Pep Guardiola was hired in hopes of winning this title. Although Guardiola’s career at the English team featured Premier league domination, he failed to win the Champions League as well. In this season, the Citizens are in a really good position to win this tournament as they will not be playing in any other competition. They will be 100% focusing on bringing the trophy home. However, what if Guardiola fails to achieve this milestone? Will Manchester City look for another manager to take over? And what are Manchester City next manager odds for the next season?
