In his annual interview with CityTV, our Chairman sat down with Editor-in-Chief Chris Bailey the morning after our defeat to Chelsea in the Champions League final.
And in the first instalment of three, he expressed his delight at a season that saw us win the Premier League title for the third time in four years, finishing 12 points ahead of our nearest rivals, as well as a fourth-successive Carabao Cup.
He also discusses our plans for this summer’s transfer window and reveals details about the positive talks he had with Pep Guardiola in November when the boss agreed a new two-year deal to stay at the Etihad.
“[It was] a remarkable season by any description,” he said.
“But it's also a culmination of years of hard work to reach a level of consistency, a level of expectations, that this club has reached now, which is a Club that will compete year in, year out.
“You can't win every year, but year in, year out, we're going to be there.”
