Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says results will determine whether he signs another contract extension with the club.
The 51-year-old’s current deal at the Etihad Stadium expires at the end of next season and, when asked whether he could stay for a longer period, he replied:
“I’m here six years because we won a lot. I came because many people convinced me. It [staying longer] depends on the results. No more than that. I have one and a half years left on my contract, which is a long time when you look around at world football.”
Considering City are currently top of the Premier League and have the potential of winning their fourth title in six seasons under the management of Guardiola, it seems likely that the former Barca and Bayern boss will meet the criteria.
With the Manchester club having dominated the domestic game since Guardiola’s arrival in England, rivals such as Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United would be glad to see the back of him.
However, from the sound of things, he could well extend his time with the Citizens, as long as things continue to run smoothly for his team over the next eighteen months or so.
