Guardiola says he could extend his contract with Manchester City


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he could extend his contract with Manchester City and has hinted that he'll stay at the club - even if their European ban is upheld. 

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager insists he's happy at the Etihad but doesn't know what the future will hold:

“I don’t know what will happen; I want to stay one more year and after that it depends.

“By 2021 we will have been five years together and we will have to see if the club is happy with me to extend the contract. I am working with exceptional players and we have incredible owners here – it wouldn’t be difficult to understand why I might want to stay three more years or whatever, but we are going to see at the end of the season.

“For now I want to stay focused on the next three months, we have to do game by game as best as we possibly can and after that we will have time to think.”

Guardiola has never stayed in a previous management role for longer than five seasons:

“When I have moved before it was because I thought I would be happier in a new job than at the place before.

“The important thing is that I have never regretted for one second my decision to come here, or to extend my contract. Beyond that results dictate our jobs.

"No manager is any different and every manager has good and bad moments. I don’t regret for one moment the decision we made together.”
