Pep Guardiola Signs Contract Extension At Manchester City Until 2021

Pep Guardiola Signs Contract Extension At Manchester City Until 2021

"As a manager you have to feel happy with the players, you have to feel good and I do. It's a pleasure to work here", he said. "But, I repeat, that will depend on the decisions of Napoli as the player is tied for another two years".

Guardiola was out of contract at the end of next season but the new deal will commit the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach to the Etihad Stadium until June 2021.

In the Premier League, they finished 19 points clear of their nearest rivals Manchester United and reached a record total of 100 points.

"I am trying, with all my efforts and desire to avoid that, and instead of making a step back we are going to make a step forward to maintain the level of this club".

City confirmed Guardiola's contract extension on their official website on Thursday. In doing so he has embodied the passion and commitment we all have for the Club.

United actually took a slightly larger share of Premier League income than City based on having more of their matches shown live.

I am very much looking forward to the continued impact of his work and to fulfilling our shared ambitions in the coming seasons.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has made a shock admission when asked to name his favourite Premier League club.

"Pep's contract extension is fantastic news for Manchester City", Ferran Soriano, the club's chief executive, said.

But after last season, the City manager conceded: "Last season has helped us to understand a lot of things so that we apply this season".

It is Liverpool, this season's Champions League finalists under Jurgen Klopp, and Mourinho's Manchester United, Premier League runners-up to City, who are perhaps best placed to derail or at least delay City's quest for pre-eminence.

The tributes flowing for Arsene Wenger as he ended his reign as Arsenal boss have been good to see, as this is a great manager whose only crime was staying too long in the job.
