‘He’s staying’, ‘gonna outdo Fergies legacy’ – Man City fans react as Pep Guardiola offers update on new contract talks

Share

Plenty of Manchester City fans have reacted to Pep Guardiola’s comments regarding his future at the club.

The Spaniard is contracted at the Etihad Stadium until 2023 and having won four of the last Premier League titles there is nobody in the club hierarchy who is looking for him to move on.

Since his appointment in 2016, Guardiola has extended his stay with the reigning Premier League Champions on two occasions, firstly in 2018 and again in 2020.

While the manager has said he will not betray the club when he makes a decision, he has also suggested that he could run down his contract before announcing his next move.

However, Guardiola has told City he remains happy to extend his contract, but exercised caution over the prospect of signing a new deal before the time is right.

Speaking on the eve of his seventh season in charge at City, Guardiola addressed his future again, saying he has spoken to the club about the issue, and neither party will rush the decision.

“I wouldn’t change my life here one second. It’s seven seasons already. We spoke with the club,” he said.

“Middle of the season, end of the season, we will talk again about how we feel and decide what’s best for the club. I said many times if they want it I’d like to stay longer but at the same time I have to be sure.

“It’s not the second or third season, it’s many years already and I have to see how the players behave. I don’t want to be a problem, sometimes when you extend things and you force it it’s not good so we you have to go through it and relax.

“This kind of situation happens when it’s going to happen in a natural way. If you force it it’s not going well. We will see what happens during the season and how we feel and the best decision for the club is going to be taken.”
