Manchester City have announced that Pep Guardiola has signed a new contract at the Premier League champions.

"Winning football games is what makes me happy and the boys did it". "It's a pleasure to work here", he said.

The brand of football played by City was spellbinding, with questions asked earlier in the campaign about whether they are the best the Premier League has ever seen.

"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".

Manchester United haven't won the Premier League title since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge of the Red Devils.

In the Premier League, they finished 19 points clear of their nearest rivals Manchester United and reached a record total of 100 points.

Club chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak is delighted to have tied the Spaniard down to a new long-term contract.

"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".

He spent four years at previous clubs Barcelona and three years with Bayern Munich.

During his time at Barcelona Guardiola only signed one-year extensions, and even said at one point that if he could sign six-month deals he would do so.
