Manchester City fans have been in dreamland for the last couple of weeks as they watched their team lift the Premier League title, and on Thursday night manager Pep Guardiola signed a new contract.
The successful coach – who has won 23 trophies across spells in charge of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and City – has put pen to paper on a contract until 2021.
Guardiola suggested after he left Barcelona in 2012 that spending more than three years at the club was too much due to the intensity and pressure.
It seems that the Spaniard is more than happy to spend a big chunk of his career at City after he nabbed the title and Carabao Cup in his second season in charge.
Unsurprisingly, the fans were left delighted by the news, but The Sun journalist Neil Custis has caused controversy with his assessment of the situation.
On Twitter, the reporter alluded to the fact that Roberto Mancini had signed a new deal as City boss after clinching the title in the 2011-12 campaign and was sacked the following year,
Remember Mancini signing a new big deal after winning the title too, it really doesn’t make any difference

City fans were quick to react, with many accusing the journalist of favouring Manchester United.
Keep believing it tubby.

Neil..this request again. Don't you think you should remove our club from your bio? Obvious you dislike city and you don't actually report on us. Why mention us?

Is this one of those parody accounts? There’s no way any journalist who wants to be taken seriously would tweet this bitter nonsense.
