Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has signed a new long-term deal with the Premier League champions, with the contract will tie him at the Etihad Stadium until 2021.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has managed to win the Premier League title with a record 100 points in this outgoing season.


The 47-year-old has made the longest commitment to a club since starting his managerial career in 2007 when he was at Barcelona B.


“I am so happy and excited. It’s a pleasure to work here,” Guardiola 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.”

“I will focus on the desire of my players to become a better team and every day that’s what I will try to do – to improve on the pitch and improve our players.”

“We have a young squad with an average age of 23 and we want to keep taking steps forward and maintain the levels we’ve achieved this season.”


Guardiola has managed to win the League Cup and the Premier League this season after securing 32 wins from 38 matches played.
