Guardiola's successes have been reflected by the statistic which reveals that City dropped only 14 points in the Premier League in 2017/18.

"Winning football games is what makes me happy and the boys did it".

Manager Guardiola said now was not the time for looking ahead to see if they could improve on their league performance next term.

"I am trying, with all my efforts and desire to avoid that, and instead of making a step back we are going to make a step forward to maintain the level of this club".

The 20 clubs between them have split a staggering £2.42 billion ($NZ4.76b) this season, from annual Premier League income that is now more than £3bn a year, the vast majority from TV deals either at home or from overseas.

But the celebrated Catalan tactician knows the criticisms of his trophy-less first year at the Etihad Stadium will return if City's youthful squad veer away from the standards set over the past nine months.

Starting out in top-flight management in 2008, Guardiola spent four years transforming Barcelona into a side that won three Spanish league titles and the Champions League twice among 13 honors.

It had been expected that Guardiola would sign a one-year extension to his previous contract, which was due to expire in 2019, but the Catalan has instead made a decision to commit his future to the club for longer.

Guardiola will look to follow up on an exceptional, record-breaking season in which Manchester City won the Premier League with 100 points and also lifted the Carabao Cup at Wembley, and this news continues an incredible year for City fans.

"We are delighted to announce the extension of Pep's contract through to 2021", City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said.

"In doing so he has embodied the passion and commitment we all have for the club".

Chief Executive Officer, Ferran Soriano, added: "Pep's contract extension is fantastic news for Manchester City".

Guardiola's new deal comes after City scored a record 106 Premier League goals and won the competition by its biggest margin, with a 19-point advantage over second-placed Manchester United. They showed that over the course of the season they were by far the best team in the league. We are very pleased with the progress.
