Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is confident manager Pep Guardiola will sign a new contract at the Nou Camp.
The former club captain has made a seamless transition to management, claiming three La Liga titles and two Champions League trophies since replacing Frank Rijkaard in 2008.
Guardiola has refused to commit his long-term future to the Catalan club though, preferring instead to sign one-year extensions with Barca.
However, Pique is in no doubt that Guardiola maintains his passion and desire for the club, and is desperate to claim more silverware with the former Spanish international at the helm.
"I don’t want to put any pressure on Guardiola. He will do things at his own tempo, like he has done every year. He has always signed a new deal, though, and I believe he’ll do so again this year," said Pique, who helped his country to a 3-1 win over Scotland last night.
“He loves his job here and the players belief in him. I think this team is the best in history and should never be broken up. Pep doesn’t have any reason to leave the club.”
President Sandro Roseli is just as adamant with regards to the future of the boss, and will work his hardest to secure his services with the club.
“We will do our best to keep Guardiola. He is the best coach in the history of the club and is also a great person. We will do our best to keep him."
