Guardiola, who joined City in the summer of 2016, has now committed his future to the English Premier League champions for the next three seasons.

This season has seen his team win the Premier League and Carabao Cup in record-breaking fashion. City became the first team of the Premier League era to earn the ‘Centurions’ tag, after registering 100 points with a 1-0 win at Southampton last Sunday (May 13).

During the course of an historic campaign, Guardiola’s Blues also set records for consecutive wins (18), total games won (32) and goal difference (+79), earning praise from many observers for their football philosophy. City also recorded the most goals scored (106), most passes in an individual game (1,015) and the biggest ever winning margin of any previous champions (19 points).

Having lifted both the Premier League trophy and Carabao Cup in his second season with the Club, Guardiola will now look to continue his success over the coming three campaigns on both the domestic and European stages.

He was rewarded for his efforts by landing both the Premier League and League Managers Association Manager of the Year awards at the LMA awards dinner on Tuesday evening (May 15).

Guardiola said: “I am so happy and excited. It’s a pleasure to be able to work here.

“I enjoy working with our players every day and we will try to do our best together in the coming years. As a manager, you have to feel good to be with the players – and I feel good.

“I will focus on the desire of my players to become a better team and every day that’s what I will try to do – to improve on the pitch and improve our players. We have a young squad with an average age of 23 and we want to keep taking steps forward and maintain the levels we’ve achieved this season.”

Manchester City FC Chairman, Khaldoon Al Mubarak, said: “We are delighted to announce the extension of Pep’s contract through to 2021. In his two seasons with us, he has fostered an incredible spirit within the squad and significantly contributed to our progress both on and off the field. In doing so he has embodied the passion and commitment we all have for the Club.

“I am very much looking forward to the continued impact of his work and to fulfilling our shared ambitions in the coming seasons.”

Chief Executive Officer, Ferran Soriano, added: “Pep’s contract extension is fantastic news for Manchester City. We have all been privileged to witness how we have played beautiful football, won titles, broken records and reached the incredible mark of 100 Premier League points. Pep has shown this style can succeed in the Premier League in a way it has never been done before.

“This season has been another step of our strategic plan and the continuous effort to improve the football we play. We are very pleased with the progress. There is more work to do and having Pep committed to Manchester City for the next three seasons gives us the stability to be able to continue our journey to beautiful football and success for the Club.”
