The city manager is in the final year of his contract at Etihad Stadium and speculation about his future is likely to increase as the season progresses.
Victor Font, a candidate for the next Barcelona president, has expressed a desire to bring Guardiola back to Nou Camp, where his previous successes included two Champions League triumphs.
When asked about Font, Guardiola said at a press conference: “I’m incredibly happy here. I’m really excited to be in Manchester and I hope I can do a good job this season to stay longer. ”
The city faced a wide variety of injuries at the beginning of the campaign. A problem that Guardiola sees as exacerbated by the shortened summer break and the intensity of the calendar affected by the pandemic.
Other clubs have also been affected and Guardiola has urged the Premier League to consider re-admitting five substitutes, as it did in the closing stages of last season after the suspension.

Guardiola said: “In any case they should, they should 100 percent. It’s not about a club.
“There are statistics that they can’t deny – that players in the Premier League have 47 percent more muscle injuries than last season because they haven’t prepared for most teams and the number of games.”
“All leagues – Germany, Spain, everywhere – allow five substitutions to protect the players, not to protect a team.”
“Hopefully they can rethink and do what the rest of the world is doing because we have to adjust to the pandemic situation and other things.
“The reality is completely different now than it used to be. Intelligent people adapt to the situation in the world – soccer is about the players. We will see.”
