JUST IN: Guardiola Signs New Man City Contract
Manchester City have made an announcement that Pep Guardiola has signed a contract extension that will see him remain as manager until the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
Guardiola, who joined in the summer of 2016, has just overseen the best season in the Club’s history, winning the Premier League title in record-breaking fashion, in addition to the League Cup secured in March after a 3-0 victory over Arsenal at Wembley.
His deal means this is the longest commitment he has made a football Club since becoming a manager in 2008.
“I am so happy and excited. It’s a pleasure to be able to work here,” Guardiola said on mancity.com.
“I enjoy working with our players every day and we will try to do our best together in the coming years. As a manager, you have to feel good to be with the players – and I feel good.
“I will focus on the desire of my players to become a better team and every day that’s what I will try to do – to improve on the pitch and improve our players. We have a young squad with an average age of 23 and we want to keep taking steps forward and maintain the levels we’ve achieved this season.”
Under the tutelage of Guardiola, City set and broke many records in the Premier League; including reaching a massive 100 points.
