Roberto Mancini has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City.
The Italian guided City to FA Cup glory in May 2011 - the club's first piece of major silverware in 35 years - and followed that up last season by pipping fierce rivals Manchester United to the Premier League title.
Now the 47-year-old has been handed a bumper new deal until 2017, which ends speculation over his future after he was reported to be a target for Russia.
"I am delighted to be able to give all of my efforts to Manchester City for a further five years," said Mancini, who succeeded Mark Hughes at the Etihad Stadium in December 2009.
"The opportunity which exists to build on our recent success is enormous. Manchester City is a fantastic football club, from the owner, chairman, board and the executive team, through to the players, staff and fans. I am very much looking forward to the challenges and excitement ahead."
City's interim Chief Executive Officer John MacBeath added: "Roberto’s managerial credentials have been well proven in Europe for many years and in leading a team which has won the FA Cup and an unforgettable Barclays Premier League title in successive seasons, his ability to manage in the English domestic game is also undisputed.
"This new agreement allows Roberto to focus on the challenge of guiding a team which is capable not only of defending the Premier League title, but one which can compete for European honours."
