Bayern Munich boss, Pep Guardiola, has been confirmed as his successor at the start of the 2016/17 season.
At around 1pm today, Manchester City released a statement saying that they had “commenced and finalized contractual negotiations with Pep Guardiola to become Head Coach for the 2016/17 English Premier League Season onwards.”
The deal is for three years and with already 2 Champions League’s, 3 La Liga’s, 2 Bundesliga’s, 3 Club World Cups and 3 Super Cups, Pep will definitely be wanting to be adding a Premier League title to his honours.
Pellegrini spoke earlier in his press conference confirming the news.
“I talked to the club and I will finish my contract on the original date,”
“We signed a contract for one more year, but with a clause that one of the club or me cannot use that extended contract. So I will finish here on the original date.
“They are not doing anything behind me. I knew this a month ago. But I don’t think it’s good, this rumour and speculation about different things. I would prefer to finish the speculation today. That’s why I told the press, I told the players, and I spoke with the club two weeks ago saying that I would do it.”
Manuel clarifies his future in part one of his #safcvcity press conference.
