Manchester City have announced Pep Guardiola has signed a new two-year contract with the club. The Catalan arrived at the Etihad Stadium in 2016 and has guided them to 11 trophies during his tenure, including four Premier League titles - making him the second-most successful manager in the competition.
His impressive tenure as Sky Blues boss has seen him win three Premier League Manager of the Season awards. Guardiola has also been named the competition’s Manager of the Month on 11 occasions - the third-most won by a manager in England’s top flight.
The Catalan’s new deal won’t come as a surprise to many given his admiration for the way City’s owners run the club. Speaking on his contract renewal, Guardiola said: “I am so pleased to be staying at Manchester City for another two years.
“I can’t say thank you enough to everyone at the club for trusting me. I am happy and comfortable here. 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 ten years, and it will happen in the next ten years because this club is so stable.
“From day one I felt something special being here. I cannot be in a better place.
“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.”
According to the Sun, Guardiola’s previous deal saw him earn a staggering £19m per year. However, as expected with a new deal, it’s likely the 51-year-old would have improved his previously agreed terms, though no figure has been disclosed as of writing.
With that being said, ManchesterWorld takes a look at where Guardiola ranks among the highest-earning managers in the Premier League, including Manchester United’s Erik ten Hag. For clarification, this is based on his previous contract (£19m per year) as opposed to his new contract.
