Pep Guardiola has hinted that he could extend his stay with Premier League champions Manchester City. The City boss agreed a two-year contract extension last December.
Speaking before Manchester City’s FA Community Shield against Arsenal, Guardiola seemed excited about the prospect of continuing at the Etihad. When asked about his future he said: “I signed a contract for another two years because I feel comfortable – and nothing has changed whether we won the treble or didn’t win. I am happy and the people are happy, the board and the hierarchy especially. Because they decide in the end which manager is going to lead this group of players.” He said.
Pep added: “If they are satisfied, I am still satisfied. I want to defend what we won and maybe at the end of the season, if I am tired, we will talk with the club – or maybe extend more.”
😂 “I said that?!”
Pep Guardiola was asked to comment on the suggestion he could leave Man City after winning the Treble, which they of course did… 😅

Guardiola’s current deal expires at the end of the 24/25 season. Provided he sees out the remainder of his current deal, he would’ve been at Manchester City for 9 years.
His stay at the Etihad has produced one of the most successful spells in the club’s history. With 5 Premier League titles, 4 Carabao Cups, 2 FA Cups and a maiden UEFA Champions League crown under his belt, Pep seems determined to build on his already incredible legacy.
The City boss speaking of possibly extending his stay at the Etihad bodes well for the upcoming season. Manchester City will seek to defend their treble of crowns from last season.
