Nifemi Daniel

Current Bayern Munich coach, Pep Guardiola, has been confirmed to take over as the new coach of Manchester City next season.

City on Monday confirmed that Guardiola has signed a three-year contract to take over as manager in July, adding that Manuel Pellegrini will leave the job on June 30.

“Out of respect for Manuel Pellegrini and the players, the Club wishes to make its decision public to remove the unnecessary burden of speculation,” City said in a statement on their website.

“Manuel, who is fully supportive of the decision to make this communication, is entirely focused on achieving his targets for the season ahead and retains the respect and commitment of all involved with the leadership of the Club.”
