Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has committed his future to the club by agreeing a new two-year deal at the Etihad Stadium.
The 49-year-old Guardiola had just seven months left on his previous contract but the new deal, which runs to the summer of 2023, would stretch his City stay to seven years from his arrival in 2016.
Since Guardiola took over, City have won six major trophies, including two Premier League titles.
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.”
