          Pep Guardiola has signed a two-year contract extension at Manchester City, the Mancunian club have announced today. 

          The contract, which now runs to the summer of 2023, sees Guardiola’s commitment to City extended to seven years from his arrival in 2016. That will take Guardiola's tenure at City beyond seven years, making it by far his longest managerial job in football.

          In a statement released by the club, chairman Khaldoon Mubarak said:

          “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.

          "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.”

          Challenges ahead

          In the same statement released by the Citizens, the Spanish manager added:

          “Ever since I arrived at Manchester City I have been made to feel so welcome in the club and in the city itself - from the players, the staff, the supporters, the people of Manchester and the chairman and owner. Since then we have achieved a great deal together, scored goals, won games and trophies, and we are all very proud of that success.

          “The challenge for us is to continue improving and evolving, and I am very excited and about helping Manchester City do that.”

          Manchester City have won eight trophies, including two Premier League titles, since Guardiola took over.
