Pep Guardiola feels that unlike Roy Hodgson he will be unable to carry on being a manager in his later years.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola feels that although it won’t be any time soon that he will be calling it quit as a manager, but it won’t be too later either.

Man City face Crystal Palace up next in the Premier League. And speaking about his opponent’s boss, the Spaniard has insisted that he won’t be seen on the touchline at age 72.

As Four Four Two reports, Guardiola believes that it is the lack of interest at home that forces Roy Hodgson to stay in the business so long.

“If I still like it and I have offers, and I have passion, and I’m still enjoying it and the people I am living with on and off the pitch, and I’m comfortable,” Guardiola replied when asked about his retirement plans.

“I didn’t say I’m going to retire next week or next year. But I don’t think at that age I’ll be a manager, but I don’t know.

“I think when you are training at 72 it is because you are bored at home! That must be the reason why, but it is so addictive. It’s nice, our job.”
