Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2025.

Guardiola, 51, has won 11 trophies, including four Premier League titles, during six years at Etihad Stadium.

From day one I felt something special being here. I cannot be in a better place,” said Spaniard Guardiola.

“I am so pleased to be staying at Manchester City for another two years.”

He added: “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.”

City, the current Premier League champions, are second in the table this season – five points behind Arsenal – and face RB Leipzig in the Champions League round of 16 in February.

Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said he was “delighted” to extend Guardiola’s contract.

“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,” said Al Mubarak.
