Pep Guardiola has signed a new two-year contract at Manchester City to keep him at the club until the summer of 2025.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss took over at the Etihad in 2016 and has since won four Premier League titles, one FA Cup and four League Cups.
The Spaniard will now continue his hunt for the trophy that has eluded him since Barcelona: the Champions League.
Across all competitions, Pep Guardiola has won 271 of the 374 matches he has overseen, giving him a remarkable win percentage of 72.4%. City have scored 921 goals during that period, at an average of 2.46 goals per game.
ndeed, his 374 games in charge means is second only to Les McDowall – who managed 587 between 1950 – 1963 – on City’s list of longest-serving post-war managers.
Confirming the news, Club Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: “I am delighted that Pep’s journey with Manchester City Football Club will continue.
“He has already contributed so much to the success and fabric of this organisation, and it’s exciting to think what might be possible given the energy, hunger and ambition that he clearly still has.
“Under his very special leadership our first team has accomplished so much, whilst continuously playing, and constantly evolving, a City style of football that is admired the world over. Like every City fan, I am looking forward to what lies ahead.”
Guardiola spoke of his delight at remaining City manager until the summer of 2025.
“I am so pleased to be staying at Manchester City for another two years,” he said.
“I can’t say thank you enough to everyone at the club for trusting me. I am happy and comfortable here. 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 ten years, and it will happen in the next ten years because this club is so stable.
“From day one I felt something special being here. I cannot be in a better place.
“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.”
Everyone at Manchester City would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Pep on his new contract and wish him every success during the remainder of his time here.
