Manchester City football director Txiki Begiristain has been called ‘euphoric’ by Pep Guardiola’s decision to renew his contract at the club.
Speaking to the official Man City website, he said: “Pep is really happy and we are very happy with his commitment to Man City for the next two years. He is already working hard as always, thinking about how to beat the opponent. I’m so happy to see you here … “
“I cannot say what innovations we will see. It is always changing. It depends on the opponent. Pep studies a lot and sees the things we have to change, there are variables. We can play with open defenders but we can also play with wingers … “
“Sometimes we have two forwards and we have seen double grip midfielders with a defense of four or sometimes three. The good thing is that there just isn’t a system we can play with. “
Txiki has called tactical innovation the key to Manchester City’s success.
Pep Guardiola’s decision to extend his contract has caused waves of jubilation throughout the club. His two-year extension will keep him at the club until the end of the 2022-23 season.
