Manchester City are pleased to announce that Pep Guardiola has signed a new two-year deal with the Club.

Pep’s current five-year stay is already the longest commitment he has made to a football Club since becoming a manager in 2008, and this extension will see him overtake Joe Mercer and put him second on the Club’s list of longest-serving post-war managers.

Confirming the news, Chairman Khaldoon Mubarak said: “

It is testament to the qualities of the man that Pep Guardiola’s passion and intelligent approach are now woven into the very fabric of the football we play and our culture as Club.  That impact has been central to our success during his tenure and it is why I am delighted that he shares our view that there is so much more to be achieved both on and off the field.

“Pep’s contract extension is the natural next step in a journey which has evolved over many years.  It is a product of the mutual trust and respect that exists between him and the entire Club.  It also goes to the stability and creativity at the heart of our football operations.  Importantly it is a validation of the football structure and philosophy that has been built over more than a decade and to which he has contributed so much.

“I’m sure all City fans share my delight in this new agreement and in anticipating the exciting opportunities that, with continued hard work, are there to be taken.”
