Pep Guardiola is a bad loser

Pep Guardiola and Barcelona win everything all the time and because of this we have never really known how Pep would react if things went wrong. It turns out he reacts like an Italian and is going to run away at the first sign of trouble.

Guaridiola's contract is on a yearly basis. At the end of each season, he assesses things and goes "won the league, won the european cup, scored 1,000 goals - yup might as well stay". However this season, things haven't gone to plan. Almost certainly losing the league to Real Madrid and knocked out of the Champions League by a Chelsea team who clearly have dealings with the devil, he is pondering not signing a new deal.

A meeting took place between Barca's president and Pep, it's believed that his future was discussed at length and an official press statement is expected tomorrow. I can almost guarantee that the statement will not be that he is leaving. Although they have fuck all to play for now so it wouldn't make a difference if he said he's leaving now or a bit later. Chin up Pep, you won 14 trophies in four years and had the easiest job in the world. Now things are starting to go a bit wrong, you are leaving - I think that's a smart thing to do. What's the point in doing a job that's hard when you can quit? Leave now and save what is left of your hair.
