Guardiola extends City stay after record-breaking season

Guardiola extends City stay after record-breaking season”

Guardiola had earlier been named Premier League manager of the year at the LMA Awards dinner in London on Tuesday night, just 24 hours after celebrating City's triumph with an open-top bus parade around Manchester.

Fresh off a Premier League and EFL Cup double, Manchester City manager announced that they had got Pep Guardiola to put pen to paper a contract extension till 2021.

It had been expected that Guardiola would sign a one-year extension to his previous contract, which was due to expire in 2019, but the Catalan has instead chose to commit his future to the club for longer.

"It means that the Club is happy with my work, they trust me, and I hope to meet their expectations on the pitch and bring a lot of joy to the fans", added Ederson, who earned his first Brazil call-up in October.

'I enjoy working with our players every day and we will try to do our best together in the coming years. I suffered, I lived, I experienced it for the first time away at White Hart Lane against physicality, an awesome team the way they play, high pressing, good build-up.

Guardiola, 47, arrived in England last season and led City to third, 15 points off champions Chelsea.

He said: In his two seasons with us, he has fostered an incredible spirit within the squad and significantly contributed to our progress both on and off the field. From where I want to play, how I want to play, with who I want to play with and how we are doing it.

The Spanish manager has spent over £450 million on signings since taking over at City in 2016 and admitted that the Sky Blues' Premier League success in 2017-18 was a result of that investment.

The 26-year-old German midfielder was one of Brighton & Hove Albion's low-profile summer recruit from FC Ingolstadt 04.

However his City team bulldozed their way to the title this season, becoming the first team to reach 100 points in the Premier League, scoring 106 goals in the process.

They will be heavy favourites to win the title again in 2018-19, but historically even the best sides have found it tough to defend the Premier League. We have all been privileged to witness how we have played lovely football, won titles, broken records and reached the incredible mark of 100 Premier League points.

"Of course, Manchester City haven't done that in the past".
