Funny Moments – Matchday 34

Manchester City have confirmed that manager Manuel Pellegrini has put pen to paper on a two-year contract extension at the Etihad.

The Chilean took over at the club back in 2013 and his deal was due to expire at the end of the 2015/16 campaign.

However, he is now set to remain at the club until at least June 2017 after agreeing to an extension, along with the rest of his backroom staff.

Talking to the club's official website, Pellegrini said: "I am proud to manage Manchester City FC and am therefore very pleased to have agreed this contract. 

"I have a very good quality group of players and a great team of people to work with on and off the field and at all levels of the Club. 

"I am focussed on the coming season and confident that my team and I will respond to the constant support shown to us by everyone including of course our fantastic fans."
