Cape Town - Manchester
City boss Pep Guardiola said he needs some time, with back-to-back
losses prompting him to declare that winning is a must.
"I don't know. I don't think about that," he said when asked whether
he would be given time to get things right. "Anything can happen. Our
position depends on the results."
City trail Premier League leaders Chelsea by seven points after
falling 4-2 to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, their
second loss in a row.
"You have to win," Guardiola said, adding, however, that City officials "trust" him.
"Give me time. If you analyse the last month, I have failed."
"If it doesn't go well, I say: 'Sorry guys, I was not able' and
another guy is coming here," he said. "I have been here six months
though so I still have time."
Guardiola said the example of Alex Ferguson showed that the club should be patient.
"Sir Alex Ferguson didn't win the title for 11 years. Liverpool haven't won it for 25 years."
Guardiola said his determination to succeed remained intact.
"I'm not leaving. Next season will be better. Two years will be better."
City host Watford on Wednesday with kick off scheduled for 22:00.
