Pep Guardiola has committed his future to Manchester City by agreeing a new two-year deal at the club, until the end of the 2022-23 season.
Spaniard Guardiola has guided City to two Premier League titles and an FA Cup since his arrival in 2016.
It is already Guardiola’s longest stay as a manager, after four years in charge of Barcelona and three at Bayern Munich.
“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 [Soriano] and Txiki [Begiristain] 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 about helping Manchester City do that.”
“Pep’s contract extension is the natural next step in a journey which has evolved over many years. It is a product of the mutual trust and respect that exists between him and the entire Club,” City chairman Khaldoon Mubarak said in a statement.
