Following Barcelona's 2-1 win over Estudiantes in the final of the Club World Cup that gave it its sixth trophy of the season, Coach Pep Guardiola broke down in tears. He's exhausted and considering quitting at the end of the season when his current contract expires.
Guardiola has been on the job for 16 months and knows the time to step aside is when he is at the top. He also knows the doors at Barca will always be open to him if he wants to return. Guardiola's departure would coincide with the end of Joan Laporta's reign as president. His term ends on June 30.
