MANCHESTER - Pep Guardiola has said there is no chance he will quit as Manchester City manager at the end of the season, even if they miss out on a third consecutive Premier League title.
City have slipped to fourth in the table and a 3-1 defeat by leaders Liverpool two weeks ago left Guardiola's team nine points off the top.
"Why should people think I'm not happy here? Because we lost at Anfield or I've lost three games this season? That's an odd reason to say I'm not happy or satisfied to be here," he told reporters.
Guardiola will complete four years at City at the end of this campaign, matching his spell at Barcelona before he chose to step down.
After setting records for goals scored and points tally with City over the last two seasons, the Spanish coach said he is enjoying the challenge of trying to topple Liverpool.
