Manchester City are set to officially unveil their new manager Pep Guardiola this weekend. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager succeeds Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad ahead of his first season as a Premier League manager.
Pep Guardiola will be expected to address Blues fans at Manchester Town Hall on Sunday, as the club shall also use that opporunity to reveals its new crest. City announced the badge, which resembles their old logo, on Boxing Day last year. The events lined-up are part of ‘Cityzens Weekend’, two-day programme to mark a new beginning in the club’s history.
The chief executive officer Ferran Soriano said, “At Manchester City, we are embarking on an exciting new chapter in our history and we wanted to create an event that would allow thousands of fans to celebrate and participate in this, both here in Manchester and around the world.
The event which was tagged “Cityzens Weekend’ will provide a good opportunity for fans to welcome their new manager, Pep Guardiola, to the club and see the new kit and badge come to life across the Etihad Campus.
