Manchester City Head Coach Pep Guardiola has committed his future to the club, penning a new two-year deal at the Etihad Stadium.
The Spaniard, who has been in charge since the 2016/17 season, was set to be out of contract at the end of the current campaign but will now be overseeing the Citizens until at least 2023.
His new contract also brings to end plenty of speculation surrounding his future, with rumours in the summer suggesting that Spanish giants Barcelona were keen on Guardiola’s return to the club.
Upon signing his new contract in Manchester, Guardiola said: “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. Since then we have achieved a great deal together, scored goals, won games and trophies, and we are all very proud of that success.
“The challenge for us is to continue improving and evolving, and I am very excited and about helping Manchester City do that,” he continued.
In his four years at the Etihad thus far, Guardiola has lifted eight trophies including two Premier League titles. At the current time, the Citizens sit tenth in the league standings and are available at a price of 7/5 with Betfair to reclaim their title at the end of the campaign.
