Bayern Munich's Josep Guardiola has been on the hot seat since arriving to the German squad back in 2013. Having failed to deliver yet another UCL trophy to the club, some believe he is not fit to lead the team to European glory.
However criticised the Spaniard's been during his reign as Munich's boss, his team are currently undefeated this season. Guardiola's side has been perfect in the Bundesliga, where they march 8-for-8 with a +24 goal differential as well as a solid start to the UCL.
Still, there is some speculation that he is primed to leave at the end of the season, and Manchester City's star forward Sergio Aguero has stated that he would love to play for Pep.

The Mirror reported Aguero saying: "I would love to be coached by him because he is a great coach."
Manuel Pellegrini's contract expires until the summer of 2017, but Guardiola is free to leave Munich at the end of this season. There have been no reports that City are interested in approaching Guardiola, but Aguero's issued statement hints that there is interest on behalf of the English side to acquire Guardiola.
"But today I'm so happy with Pellegrini," continued Aguero.
Things have not gone well for Manchester City the last month. After a perfect 5-for-5 start to the 2015-2016 BPL, the Citizens have lost two of the last three matchups as well as a shaky star to the UCL where they march third in their group.
To make matters worse, Aguero -who's currently the league's second best goalscorer behind Jamie Vardy- is out for the next four weeks due to a hamstring injury he sustained during Argentina's upset loss to Ecuador this past weekend.
Pellegrini's resiliency will be tested the next few weeks, as Spanish midfielder David Silva is out and will also miss the Manchester derby after a severe ankle sprain during Spain's Euro Cup qualifier against Luxembourg.
