Man City's Pep Guardiola signs contract extension to 2021

Man City's Pep Guardiola signs contract extension to 2021

The victorious squad and manager Pep Guardiola were driven through the streets in an open-top bus to celebrate a historic season filled with record-breaking achievements.

Sergio Aguero's incredible performance this season has been largely overshadowed by the stunning performances of Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah but the Argentinian's lethal scoring record has been one of the main reasons behind Manchester City's dominance, especially in the crucial middle part of the season.

"The last few weeks were really hard for him", Klopp told Sky Sports.

"Last season has helped us to understand a lot of things so that we apply this season", said Guardiola.

Asked which areas City will target this summer, the manager added: 'Maybe in front, but I don't know. We have to think and talk more with Txiki and the staff.

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea racked up 95 points in winning the 2004-05 Premier League title but that historic haul has now been bettered by City, who reached 97 points with their win over Brighton in midweek before then becoming centurions at Southampton.

Salah emerged as a potential candidate for this award thanks to his prolific goal scoring this season but little did anyone know quite what the Egyptian global was going to achieve when he scored his first Premier League goal for Liverpool on the opening weekend of the season at Watford.

To which Guardiola responded: "Last season we had him [Fabian Delph] and I never asked him to play in that position, I didn't realise".

He said: 'For no team to do it for a long time shows how hard it is.

Guardiola also has a history of building dynasties as his Barcelona and Bayern Munich sides won three consecutive league titles before he arrived in Manchester.

"I see a bright future for my successor because the team has a good attitude and quality." said the Frenchman.

James Milner did not feature but Klopp said the midfielder would be back in three to four days and would be fit to play against Madrid.

"Normally after winning you say 'now I don't run"; this is the moment you are not going to win.

Winning four back to back manager of the month awards, holding nearly all the positive Premier League records and having all top four assist kings for the season in his squad just shows the free-flowing attacking display we have witnessed for the last ten months.
