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.

"The contract and the manager always depends on the result. We have extended two years to stay for the next three years but we depend on results," Guardiola told his club's official website.

"In football, what you have done in one year can change absolutely everything. But I have confidence with the club, with the chairman [Khaldoon Al Mubarak], with [director of football] Txiki [Begiristain]. We know [each other] perfectly.

"We have to see what they think of the future. It also depends on my energy and my strength to keep going. On the prospect of staying with City longer than any of his previous clubs, Guardiola pointed out how fickle fortunes in football can be if success is not sustained.

"We have a contract because we have to have a contract, but the club knows me and when I have the feeling that our relationship with the players is not good I am going to make a step back and another guy is going to come to help the players maintain this high level."

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.

Guardiola has been granted a seemingly more favourable working environment in Manchester to realise this vision, free form the behind-the-scenes politicking at Barcelona and the over-arching influence of former players at Bayern.

His relationships with chief executive Ferran Soriano and Begiristain, a former Barcelona team-mate, appear to have been key factors in City tying down the mastermind of their magnificent campaign.

"I think I have a good relationship with the chairman," Guardiola added. "Ferran and Txiki, we have known each other for a long time – Txiki is almost part of our family.

"We have all the conditions to be stable like a club and are trying to be ready for the next years.

"I am focused on the pitch and the club has other important people working in other departments. We are going to try every day on the pitch to improve our players.

"It is a young squad and if we are stable mentally - don't believe too much what we are and think about what we can do to improve our game - maybe we can compete with the rest of the teams in England and Europe."

Pep Guardiola signs new deal at Manchester City .
Manchester City have confirmed that Pep Guardiola has signed a new and improved contract at the club. Twitter: We’ve got Guardiola! #mancity https://t.co/JIpTiZB5rc (@ManCity) Guardiola led City to a quite phenomenal campaign in his second full season in charge, as they won both the Premier League and the Carabao Cup with consummate ease. The Citizens won the league by 19 points and amassed a total of 100 points, a record sum in a 38-game season. Guardiola’s successes have been reflected by the statistic which reveals that City dropped only 14 points in the Premier League in 2017/18. Guardiola’s extension will keep him contracted to the club until the summer of 2021, with an agreement having been reached after plenty of discussions between the manager and top brass at the Etihad. The Spaniard will be hopeful of leading City to yet more success in the future as they bid to retain the Premier League title next term.
