Pep Guardiola Accepts a 2- Year Contract Extension With Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola has made a decision to stick with Manchester City for another two years, this was after he agreed to extend his contract until 2025. His contract with the club was supposed to expire at the end of this season. The talks were well faciliated the by the ongoing mid-season break that’s meant for the 2022 World Cup.

According to The Athletic reports, the new deal will be a one-year deal with the club, and the manager holding an option of adding another season. This means the two parties can decide to part ways after one year. Looking at the deal is not different from the deal he signed in 2020 where he signed a one-year deal with the option of renewing for another season.

In a media interview after agreeing to the deal, the Manchester City gaffer said,

(Would I) stay in another place for seven years? No, I don’t think so. It is difficult to find what I have here as a manager.

To be a manager for a long time you need to be so supported. The results help a lot, that is undeniable. In this world they sack you, they fire you, we know that.

But, at big clubs, part of the success of the manager is the chairman, the sporting director especially, the CEOs and all the people here.

It goes to the media, fans and players. There is stability. This is why I think only in few clubs this can happen.
