Pep Guardiola Extends Man City Contract To 2021
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has signed a new deal with the Premier League champions which will keep him at the club until 2021.
The 47-year-old Spaniard joined City in 2016 on a three-year contract and led them to the Premier League title this year, 19 points ahead of second-placed Manchester United.
City became the first top-flight club to collect 100 points in a season and broke records for goals scored in a Premier League campaign (106), the most victories and best goal difference.
“I am so happy and excited. It’s a pleasure to work here,” he said.
“I enjoy working with our players every day and we will try to do our best together in the coming years. As a manager, you have to feel good to be with the players – and I feel good.”
City scored 106 goals and claimed 32 wins, both Premier League records, as they dropped only 14 points in the league all season.
City also won the League Cup this year, giving Guardiola a total of 23 major trophies in nine seasons as a manager, but they were knocked out of the Champions League at the quarterfinal stage by Premier League rivals Liverpool.
