Guardiola signs new Barcelona deal

By Soccernet staff

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him at the Camp Nou until 2011.

Pep Guardiola: Will remain at Barca next season.

The future of the all-conquering Catalan coach, who won six trophies with Barcelona last term, has been the subject of intense speculation but on Wednesday morning club officials revealed he had extended his contract beyond the end of the season.

Speaking at a press conference, Barca president Joan Laporta and technical secretary Txiki Begiristain, together with Guardiola, confirmed that the 39-year-old would remain in charge of the team next season.

Guardiola was promoted from coach of Barca's B side to his current position in the summer of 2008 following the departure of Frank Rijkaard, and last year he led the club to an unprecedented haul of trophies.

Barca became the first Spanish side to win the treble of Champions League, Primera Division and Copa del Rey during the 2008/09 season, the Blaugrana then added the Spanish and European Super Cups before completing the set by winning the Club World Cup in December.
