A Coach Everyone Will Remember

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola is probably a coach that everyone will remember for long after guiding Barcelona to six titles in 2008/2009. Maybe he will replace Alex Ferguson next season. A move to Manchester United is good for him. But will it be good for Barcelona? Only time will tell. Being a Barcelona fan, I hope he will stay for at least 3 years instead of 1.

Guardiola - A coach that knows how to preach beautiful football and enjoy the game!

Anyway, scored five goals for yesterday's games. What a day! :)

Guardiola to extend deal by one year

BARCELONA: Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has agreed to extend his contract with the Spanish and European champions by one year to the end of next season, president Joan Laporta said yesterday.

“We had a meeting last night and Pep Guardiola told me he was committed to staying for at least one more season,” Laporta said at a news conference with Guardiola and sporting director Txiki Begiristain.

Guardiola would sign his new contract on July 1st after elections for a new president had been held, Laporta added.

“What we are announcing today is the guarantee and compromise that Guardiola is prepared to stay on,” he said.

Guardiola, who turned 39 on Monday, led Barca to an unprecedented six trophies in 2009, including the Spanish league, the Champions League and the Club World Cup. — Reuters
