Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says the club has a managerial succession plan in place.
The Catalan insists the club doesn’t rely on him for their success.
Guardiola said: “The club knows exactly what is the next step. No one can see the problems [of the future] but I am 100% convinced.
“They know what the strategy is, what they have to do right now, tomorrow and for next season. When the club depends on one person we have a problem.
“If the club just depends on Pep it is because we have not done well. I never buy players, it is not my money. It is the club. The club is the most important word.
“Every decision we make is thinking about the club. In football, like all sport, you lose more than you win but it is important to think the way you do it will give you the trophies and the titles.”
