Pep Guardiola asked why he has never been sacked as a manager, he responds brilliantly

Pep Guardiola asked why he has never been sacked as a manager, he responds brilliantly

Pep Guardiola revealed his secret behind why he has never been sacked.

Pep Guardiola responded brilliantly when he was asked why he has never been sacked during his legendary managerial career.

Guardiola fielded questions from the press ahead of Manchester City resuming their Premier League campaign at Southampton on Saturday.

He pits his wits against fellow countryman and relative novice Ruben Selles, who replaced Nathan Jones following his dismissal earlier this year.

Jones' sacking was one of 13 managers who have lost their job in England's top flight this season, with the likes of Antonio Conte, Graham Potter and Brendan Rodgers recently being relieved of their duties.

And ahead Man City traveling to St Mary's Stadium, Guardiola was asked why he has never been sacked as a manager.

"I will tell you a secret, we win games," he revealed. "If we don't win games, I would be sacked."

The Spaniard added: "It's not because my hair is better than the other ones. I'm not sacked because we win a lot of games."

Guardiola continued by suggesting the enormous investment into clubs may be a factor behind the ruthless slew of sackings.

"In this country when I was younger it always had the tradition to keep the managers," he said.

"What happens today with a lot of pressure for everyone, a lot of investment, in a way I understand there's a lot of pressure.

"Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It is what it is, you have to adapt."
