Guardiola drops retirement bombshell

Top coach Pep Guardiola has revealed he is considering retirement - just six months into his job as manager of Manchester City.

The 45-year-old was in a curious mood yesterday after watching City labour to a 2-1 victory over Burnley as he seemed incensed by a number of refereeing decisions by official Lee Mason, including sending off his midfielder Fernandinho.

Guardiola said: "I will be at Manchester for the next three seasons, maybe more, but I am arriving at the end of my coaching career, of this I am sure. I feel that the process of my goodbye has already started."
