De Bruyne expresses delight about Guardiola's contract extension

Kevin De Bruyne told Reuters that he is over the moon about the official confirmation of Pep Guardiola penning a two-year contract extension at Manchester City.

After months of question marks around his future, the 51-year-old decided to prolong his stay at the Etihad Stadium till 2025.

In a report by the Athletic’s David Ornstein, Sam Lee and Pol Ballus, it was stated that the agreement was sealed when the Spaniard visited the club’s owners in Abu Dhabi recently.

Into his 6th season at City, Guardiola has won a staggering four Premier League titles.

Winning four Carabao Cup titles and an FA Cup as well, the Sky Blues have been English football’s most dominance force under his charge.

De Bruyne is over the moon about the news

Speaking to Reuters, Kevin De Bruyne admitted he feels a lot more at ease, seeing Pep Guardiola deciding to sign a contract extension at Manchester City.

“It makes life a lot easier. The way he [Guardiola] leads the team is very clear and I feel very comfortable with him”, he said.

The Belgian international concluded, “Both our contracts run out to 2025, so that makes it easier. I could not be happier.”

The midfield maestro seems buzzing about Guardiola’s extension

It is music to any and every City fan’s ears that a player of De Bruyne’s importance to the side is so in sync with Guardiola.

Despite the pair working in tandem for six years, there seems to be no signs of their relationship heading south.

The 30-year-old remains arguably Manchester City’s most important player, despite the arrival of the incredible Erling Haaland this season.

With 3 league goals and 9 assists to his name this season, the decorated midfielder continues to shine in Guardiola’s system.

As Kevin De Bruyne and Pep Guardiola are set to work alongside each other for the next 3 years at Manchester City, it’s understandable if the rest of the Premier League is petrified.
