Pep Guardiola Agrees New Barcelona Contract Until June 2012

By Ollie Irish

Barcelona gaffer Josep ‘Pep’ Guardiola has agreed a new contract with the club. And why not – the former Spain midfielder, who played with great distinction as a holding midfielder for Barcelona for more than a decade, could hardly have done better since he took over at Camp Nou in 2008; he’s the Mourinho it’s OK to like.

Barca’s success is set to continue this season, with a Liga/Champions League double still a very real possibility.

Guardiola’s existing agreement takes him through to this summer, but he is set to commit to Barca until June 30, 2012 by signing “in the next few days”… but could he manage Stoke City on a wet, cold Wednesday night? Not sure he could, Richard.

And, er, that’s it. Nothing more to see here, just old-fashioned good news. No Arsenal-baiting, no wind-ups, no controversy. Sorry.

    I know I shouldn’t waste my energy on replying that stupid meme, but I’ve lived in Preston (Lancashire), and in Pamplona (Basque country, Spain), and the wet’n’cold wednesday night in the North West is bloody hawaii compared to the winter in Spanish inner towns(Pamplona,valladolid,zaragoza…). Indeed, one of Guardiola’s best achievments is that Barça is not only tiki-taka but also tons of commitment whatsoever is the envirnoment.

    Take a look of this match in Pamplona against Osasuna and enjoy the Spanish sun:
