Pep Guardiola believes Manchester City is “the perfect place to work” and says he will be at the Etihad Stadium for at least the next two seasons. The Spaniard has led City to back-to-back Premier League titles, and also won the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup last season, but there have been suggestions he could look to move on.
Guardiola is contracted to City until June 2021 after signing a two-year extension last summer and he intends to see out that deal, despite speculation linking him with the likes of Juventus. “There’s no better place in the world to play and do your job as a manager than in England,” Guardiola told the club’s official website.
“I can compare it to Spain and Germany. I haven’t been to other countries, but they would be quite similar. If I go to Italy it would be quite similar to Spain. “In other places fans boo you if you don’t win but here it’s always supportive. It’s like I am in a blue shirt and I am one of you.
“I didn’t win a title in the first year and people still supported us. I will never forget that. You can work calmly. It’s the ideal. It’s the perfect place to work. I don’t know at other clubs in England but I especially feel it here. “That’s why I am happy to reward their confidence with my players for the next two seasons.”
