Guardiola hints at Barca exit
Rome - Barcelona's Josep Guardiola said Friday he believes his days as coach of the Catalan giants are numbered.
Guardiola, who has coached the Spanish club since 2008, told Italian television Rai Sports: "I feel good here but I believe my time at Barcelona is ending."
"I've already done three years, one more will be four years. And in four years a big club needs a lot of courage to keep the same coach. Everyone should know when it's the right time to go, as I always heard when I was a player," said the 40-year-old.
Guardiola extended his contract with Barcelona by a season in February with his new deal expiring in June 2012.
He led the Spanish club to two league titles in 2009 and 2010, and the Champions League in 2009. They are currently leading the league by five points on Real Madrid.
Guardiola was speaking as part of the centenary celebrations for Italian club Brescia where he played in the early 2000s.
