Since he started his managerial career in 2008, Guardiola has spent the most time in charge of one club during his current tenure at Manchester City.

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

“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.

“From day one I felt something special being here. I cannot be in a better place.”

Before taking over at Manchester City, the Spaniard served three years as manager of German powerhouse Bayern Munich before taking over at his hometown club FC Barcelona from 2008 to 2012.

With the season suspended for the World Cup in Qatar, Manchester City is second in the league with 32 points from 14 games, five points behind champions Arsenal.
