Following Manchester City's exit from the Champions League earlier this week in the last 16 stage, there are suggestions that Guardiola will move forward with a major reconstruction of the squad at the end of the season.
That is the belief of the head of one of their prominent supporters groups.
Manchester City's best form of defence will be to attack in Monaco on Wednesday (March 15) as they seek to reach the Champions League quarter-finals, manager Pep Guardiola said.
Atletico is trying to return to the final after losing to Real Madrid last season.
Having said that, football usually gives you a chance to bounce back and put things behind you, so there is little time to lick your wounds as the next match is just around the corner. So I always feel he is there, so close to the team, so close to me. City could have won the game easily in the second half but because they are human beings they missed a few chances. I still can't explain it nearly 24 hours on. However, they have another shot at Champions League glory as a 0-0 draw with Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday sealed their place in Friday's draw 4-2 on aggregate.
Center half John Stones called his team's performance "very sloppy" and accepted that the players had let Guardiola down.
"There nearly seemed no belief in that semi-final".
It nearly feels the narrow exit, on away goals after a 6-6 aggregate draw, only serves to paper over the cracks because, on this evidence, Guardiola needs a complete rebuild in defence and also in midfield. There are moments where you think, "that's why they paid Everton £50million for him".
"I'm a bit down about it".
Asked whether Monaco should fear a team in the quarter-finals or if they should be feared instead, Jardim replied: "The second option".
But Betfair is offering new customers the chance to throw their faith behind the Catalan's charges and back them at the boosted price of 5/1 (6.00) .
Amidst the mounting criticism - plenty of which is disproportionate - Guardiola admitted to failing; not tactically, but in terms of communication. Some of it is justified, some not.
However, despite that impressive unbeaten record and the fact Pep Guardiola's team were knocked out of the Champions League last 16 at the hands of Monaco in midweek, Klopp does not think the Reds are favourites to win the Super Sunday clash at the Etihad.
We imagine Klopp's referring to sides like Burnley, Sunderland and Manchester United, who've played direct, ugly football against us this season - to irritatingly decent effect.
