Pep Guardiola signs new Manchester City contract

Pep Guardiola has signed a new deal to stay at Manchester City until the summer of 2023.

The 49-year-old’s existing deal expired at the end of the season.

Guardiola led City to back-to-back Premier League titles in 2018 and 2019, setting a new record for points in a single season when his side reached 100 points in 2017/18.

City have also won the FA Cup once and the League Cup three times since Guardiola’s arrival in 2016.

The new deal will see him complete seven seasons at the Etihad, taking him far beyond the five and three years he spent at Barcelona and Bayern Munich respectively.

“Ever since I arrived at Manchester City I have been made to feel so welcome in the Club and in the city itself – from the players, the staff, the supporters, the people of Manchester and the Chairman and Owner,” Guardiola said.

“Since then we have achieved a great deal together, scored goals, won games and trophies, and we are all very proud of that success.

“Having that kind of support is the best thing any manager can have. I have everything I could possibly want to do my job well and I am humbled by the confidence the Owner, Chairman, Ferran and Txiki have shown in me to continue for two more years after this season.

“The challenge for us is to continue improving and evolving, and I am very excited and about helping Manchester City do that.” (Today)
