Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has put pen to paper for a new contract with the Citizens.

Guardiola signed a contract that will see him at the Etihad stadium till 2023, having been offered a new two-year contract.

Since joining Manchester City in 2016, Guardiola has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and three League Cups.

The Spaniard appreciated the club’s support, which he says is the reason for the achievements he has had so far.

“We have achieved a great deal together, scored goals, won games and trophies, and we are all very proud of that success.Having that kind of support is the best thing any manager can have.” Guardiola told City’s website.

Guardiola is in his fifth year at the club, and the deal makes Manchester City the club he has given the longest commitment to since his managerial debut in 2008. His previous deal will be due at the end of the current season.

However, he isn’t Manchester City’s longest-serving manager yet, but if he sees out the contract, he will be second on the list of Manchester City’s longest-serving managers.

Les McDowall holds that record taking charge of 592 games from 1950 to 1963 while Joe Mercer is second.

Manchester City will return to English Premier League action this weekend against Tottenham Hotspur at the White Hart Lane Stadium on Saturday, November 21.
