Alvarex extends stay at Manchester City
Alvarez revealed he was immensely proud to extend his stay at the club.
“This is a very proud moment for me and my family,” He said.
“For a club like City to put their faith in me like this is amazing.
“I have been really pleased with my first season here, but I have plenty more I can do. I know I can be better, and City offers me everything I need to fulfil my potential.
“I want to thank the manager, the coaches, and everyone at City who works behind the scenes for everything they have done for me since I joined in the summer. I could not have asked for more. This is a club that looks after its players, and I have felt so supported throughout my time here.
“I am now focused on getting better and helping City win trophies.”
Alvarez endured a bit of a quiet start to life at City but has grown into an important player for manager Pep Guardiola.
He has started to feature more frequently, making 33 appearances in all competitions, scoring an impressive 10 goals.
What makes that statistic even more remarkable is the fact that only 14 of those appearances have been starts.
Alvarez also played a juge role as Argentina won the World Cup in Qatar, scoring 4 goals and providing an assist.
