Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has extended his contract at the Etihad until 2025, the Premier League club confirmed on Wednesday morning.

Guardiola, who joined City in 2016 put pen to paper in a two-year deal that will keep him at the helm of affairs in the Blue side of Manchester until at least the next two seasons.

“Manchester City are delighted to announce Pep Guardiola has signed a new two-year contract,” the club said in a statement.

The 51-year-old Spaniard has taken charge of 374 matches at City, winning 271 of those, resulting in trophies, including four Premier League titles, within six years at Etihad Stadium.

Immediately after signing the new contract, Guardiola said: “From day one I felt something special being here. I cannot be in a better place. I am so pleased to be staying at Manchester City for another two years.

“I can’t say thank you enough to everyone at the club for trusting me. I am happy and comfortable, and I have everything I need to do my job as best as possible.

“I know the next chapter of this club will be amazing for the next decade. It happened over the last 10 years, and it will happen in the next 10 years because this club is so stable.

“I still have the feeling there is more we can achieve together and that is why I want to stay and continue fighting for trophies.”
