Manchester City’s annual revenue from 2014 to 2019 has increased by around £200 million following a report from the club’s official website via City Xtra, prompting some City supporters to praise the Pep effect as the Sky Blues slowly achieve their goal of becoming a self-sufficient club.
Over the last five seasons, the club’s revenue has dramatically risen from £351.8 million in 2014/2015 to £535.2 million in 2018/2019, with some of the credit for that rightfully going towards Pep Guardiola’s tenure at the club – with the Spaniard winning five major trophies in just three seasons.
Would Kingsley Coman be a good replacement for Leroy Sane?
As a result of City’s continued success on the pitch under the ex-Barcelona man, annual profit since the beginning of his managerial spell has soared by around £100 million.
In Guardiola’s debut season, the club even netted a £70 million increase when compared to Manuel Pellegrini’s last season at the helm – most likely due to the attention surrounding his appointment and his first year in the Premier League.
As a result, supporters have been quick to hail their manager on Twitter – here’s what they had to say.
