Albion are in a strong position to qualify for the Europa League knockout stages this term and the 44-year-old has brought an extremely attractive brand of football to the club.
Earlier this season, City manager Guardiola hailed the former Shakhtar Donetsk boss as one of the most influential managers in the past 20 years and now former Cityzens defender Richards feels he could replace the Spaniard at the Etihad.
He said on the latest episode of The Rest Is Football podcast: “De Zerbi, I am going to go with a big shout here, I am going to say the next Man City manager.”
Guardiola's contract at City runs until 2025 and it remains to be seen if he will extend his stay at the defending Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League holders.
