Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, cancelled Christmas for his first-team stars, as they were banned from attending the club's festive party, according to Goal.

At this moment in time, Manchester City's hierarchy are confident that Guardiola will fulfil his contract in Manchester, but it would be sensible of them to begin to think of alternatives.

City are now third on the Premier League table, 14 points off league leaders Liverpool and if reports from Sportsmail (via Daily Mail) are to be believed, Guardiola could be on his way out of the club after the end of the season, as per the aforementioned clause in his contract.

It's also been reported that former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is City's back-up plan should Guardiola decide to leave in the summer.

Subway Continues To Advocate For Zack Snyder's 'Justice League' Cut
The Black Suit which is also known as the Recovery Suit surfaced in "Death Of Superman " storyline when Kal-El returned from dead. But, soon after the release, fans began to demand to release director Zack Snyder's cut.

Only last month Guardiola had claimed that he was open to further extending his contract with the Manchester-based club.

Guardiola reportedly blamed those results on the late-night festivities of the Christmas party and wants to avoid a similar slump, particularly given the club's packed schedule over the next few weeks.

City have won two Premier League titles under Guardiola as well as the FA Cup and League Cup so the only trophy missing is the Champions League.

After last year's celebrations, City were surprisingly beaten 3-2 at home to Crystal Palace and then lost to Leicester four days later.
