Pep Guardiola has pledged his future to Man City, signing a brand new contract that will see him remain at the Etihad for another three seasons.

City's hierarchy had made it a priority to try to convince Guardiola to stay longer after he led them to the Premier League title with 100 points in a record-breaking season for his team. "It's a pleasure to be able to work here", Guardiola said today.

"Then we'll try to come back stronger than this season", added the 47-year-old Spaniard.

"Sometimes you discover things you previously didn't know, maybe pairing these two players will give you a good midfield movement, something like that".

Guardiola's charges spanked Arsenal 3-0 to win the League Cup in 2018, before claiming the league title by 19 points from rivals Manchester United. "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 lovely football and success for the club".

He'll be at City longer than he was Barcelona manager.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager usually works in three-year cycles, as he did in both his previous roles at Camp Nou and the Allianz Arena.

And Manchester City have been hailed as the best team in Premier League history for their pacy, attacking style.

Despite dominating the league and being the first side to accumulate 100 points over the course of the season, City have still faced their challenges and Guardiola has suggested that Tottenham and Liverpool provided two of the biggest tests.

This season's Premier League and League Cup triumphs have taken the number of trophies he has won as a manager to 23, burnishing his reputation even further.

"I wouldn't be backing any other team at this moment to win the Premier League", said BBC Sport pundit Shearer.

"Of course, Manchester City haven't done that in the past".
