The early months of the new season had an underwhelming campaign last time out, which the Citizens came up short in Europe, and surrendered their Premier League crown to Liverpool.
‘I would love to stay longer here. It is a place I love to be.’
Man City confirmed that Guardiola has put pen to paper on a new contract.
The deal, set to run to 2023, will see the Spaniard extend his stay in Manchester to 7 years, the longest Guardiola has ever spent in charge of a single club, by some distance.
Speaking after committing his future to City, the club’s boss explained:
‘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. 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 and Txiki 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 and about helping Manchester City do that.’
Tottenham are in second place in the Premier League, a point behind leaders Leicester City. Their impressive form will be put to the test when hosting Manchester City who are tenth but with a game in hand.
