When Pep Guardiola ultimately decides to end his tenure at the Etihad Stadium, former Sunderland midfielder Michael Bridges thinks Manchester City will turn to Ange Postecoglou.

“Ange Postecoglou was part of the City Group with the Marinos, obviously went to Celtic, but the City Group has seen what he’s all about,” Bridges said on The Optus Sport Football Podcast.
