Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to Pep Guardiola signing a new contract with Manchester City.

Guardiola has committed his future to City by putting pen to paper on a new two-year deal.

This means that the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager will stay at the Etihad Stadium until the summer of 2023 at least.

The 49-year-old was appointed the manager of City in the summer of 2016, and since then, he has guided the Citizens to the Premier League title twice, the League Cup on three occasions and the FA Cup once.

Former Tottenham Hotspur and England international Lineker is pleased to see Guardiola commit his future to City.

Guardiola told City’s official website about his new contract: “Ever since I arrived at Manchester City I have been made to feel so welcome in the Club and in the city itself- from the players, the staff, the supporters, the people of Manchester and the Chairman and Owner. Since then we have achieved a great deal together, scored goals, won games and trophies, and we are all very proud of that success.

“Having that kind of support is the best thing any manager can have. I have everything I could possibly want to do my job well and I am humbled by the confidence the Owner, Chairman, Ferran and Txiki have shown in me to continue for two more years after this season.

“The challenge for us is to continue improving and evolving, and I am very excited and about helping Manchester City do that.”
