Let dominance begin? Guardiola signs new Man City deal


Pep Guardiola has extended his contract with Manchester City which will see him stay with the club till 2021.

Guardiola was out of contract at the end of next season but the new deal will commit the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach to the Etihad Stadium until June 2021.

"I am so happy and excited".

"When we feel things are not going well, we are going to change and I am going to make a step back".

Gareth Southgate, the England manager, also paid tribute to Guardiola's work, describing the 47-year-old Catalan as an inspiration for the whole of English football.

City lost just two matches all season, and their 19-point advantage over rivals United proved their dominance.

It has been a startlingly high level - 100 points, 106 goals, 18 consecutive top-flight wins and a goal difference of +79 standing among the competition bests racked up by City this season.

But after last season, the City manager conceded: "Last season has helped us to understand a lot of things so that we apply this season".

Guardiola won the Champions League twice with Barca but City were eliminated by Liverpool in this season's quarter-finals.

City's 32 league wins this season are the most he has achieved in a single campaign, beating the 31 with Barcelona in 2009-10. "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 attractive football and success for the club".

City confirmed Guardiola's contract extension on their official website on Thursday.

After collecting the League Cup in February, City sealed the Premier League with five games to spare and finished with a record 100 points. Arsenal came fifth with £142m and the dethroned Premier League Champions Chelsea came sixth with £141.7m, and the top six clubs were the only one's earning more than £140m but relegation West Brom is the least club to for "only" £94.7m.
