Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has claimed the unconditional support given to the manager by the club is the reason why Manchester City have been more successful than their Premier League rivals in recent years.
“This is one of the secrets of the success of this club. I am pretty sure it happened before me with Manuel, with Roberto Mancini, and with my successor it will happen again,” Guardiola said.
“I am sure it is going to happen again. The people have to change their mind that this happens [total support] because it is Pep. It is beyond that.
“I am 100% sure whatever happens with me in the future – I will stay two more years and I know, Khaldoon knows, it depends on the results (as) if results are not good you never know what will happen – but I know the next chapter of this club will be amazing for the next decade.
“It happened in the last ten years, and it will happen in the next ten years because the relations are so stable across the club.
“In most clubs, people support the manager because of results. Here they support unconditionally because they know everyone works hard and does their best as possible.”
