Pep Guardiola will have the chance to add to his packed trophy cabinet after signing a new contract to keep him at Manchester City until 2021.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss endured an uncharacteristic season without silverware in his first year in England.

But he opened his account this time around with Carabao Cup success against Arsenal in February before adding the Premier League, having previously won three such titles in both Spain and Germany.

Pep Guardiola: Career trophies

Guardiola won the Champions League twice with Barca but City were eliminated by Liverpool in this season’s quarter-finals.

The FA Cup also passed them by but the League Cup win adds to Guardiola’s two domestic cups with each of his former clubs.

He also won three Super Cups in each country and will have the chance to compete for next season’s Community Shield against the winner of Saturday’s FA Cup final between Manchester United and Chelsea.

Finally, Guardiola’s Barcelona side won both the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup in 2009 and 2011 – a double he repeated with Bayern in 2013.
