Pep Guardiola signs new contract with Manchester City

Dominance continues

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has signed a new contract with the club that will see him get a pay rise on his current deal.

The contract was announced on Thursday evening and it will last until 2021, though his original contract lasted until the same year.

The deal is simply rewarding the Man City boss for his impressive season with a pay rise on his current deal.

The Etihad side have dominated almost every side they have come up against this season and have been earmarked as one of the best Premier League teams ever.

Now, that dominance is set to continue under Pep Guardiola.

Excited

The Catalan boss has described his excitement at signing a new deal and is looking to push on to ‘become a better team’.

“I am so happy and excited. It’s a pleasure to be able to work here,” Guardiola said in a Man City statement. 

“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.”
