Pep Guardiola signs two-year contract extension at Man City

Pep Guardiola signs two-year contract extension at Man City”

Since taking the job in 2016, Guardiola has led the club to two Premier League titles, three EFL Cup triumphs and FA Cup glory on one occasion.

"Having that kind of support, " Guardiola added, "is the best thing any manager can have".

There has arguably been a feeling that Guardiola's time at City may slowly be coming to an end, particularly as he didn't outstay his welcome at either Barcelona or Bayern Munich.

City are determined to land the 33-year-old and believe the addition of arguably the greatest player of all time can be the final piece in the jigsaw to take them to Champions League glory.

Guardiola's new deal means he is set to be in charge at City for longer than the four years he spent at the helm of Barcelona, and he credited chairman Khaldoon Mubarak with convincing him to remain at the Etihad Stadium.

"That's why I still have the desire to help with all the fantastic players we have for the next years, especially for the fans and we will feel proud of the way we play and the way we win". But he finishes this year his contract and I don't know what's going to happen in his mind.

City, who travel to Tottenham on Saturday, are now languishing in 10th place, six points behind leaders Leicester with a game in hand.

"That impact has been central to our success during his tenure and it is why I am delighted that he shares our view that there is so much more to be achieved both on and off the field". It is a product of the mutual trust and respect that exists between him and the entire club.

The Spaniard has enjoyed huge success since moving to English football and has won two league titles and four domestic cups with City, setting a whole host of records including setting a new Premier League points record in 2017/18 before winning an unprecedented domestic treble the following year.

However, they finished 18 points adrift of Liverpool last season and have made a relatively slow start to this campaign with 12 points from the opening seven games.

Guardiola may consider a move for Barcelona forward Lionel Messi in January after the Argentine, who is out of contract at the end of this term, asked to leave in frustration at the Spanish club's troubles in the close season.
