Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been rewarded with a two-year contract extension after he led the team to a record-breaking Premier League title winning season.
Guardiola has already spent two of the three-year deal he signed when he became Manchester City manager in 2016 and his phenomenal record this season meant that a contract renewal was a no brainer.
He has now pledged his future to the club until 2021 as he hopes to make Manchester City a force at home and in Europe.
While speaking about his new deal in an interview with the club’s official website, Guardiola expressed his excitement at penning a new contract with the Citizens. He said: “I am so happy and excited. It’s a pleasure to be able to work here,” Guardiola told City’s official website.
“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.” he concluded.
