Mikel Arteta has congratulated Pep Guardiola after the Manchester City boss signed a new contract on Thursday and believes his mentor will be more focused than ever on delivering Champions League success.

The former Bayern Munich and Barcelona supremo had been close to entering the final six months of his previous deal and City had started to grow fearful that the uncertainty over the 49-year-old’s future could undermine their season.

Guardiola, however, ended any lingering doubts on Thursday by committing to City for a further two years. The only blot on the Spaniard’s copy book since he arrived in England in 2016 remains his failure to succeed in Europe but his former No.2 has backed him to put that right.

Arteta said: ‘I’m very pleased for him because as you know, he has never been so long at a football club.

‘So the fact that he’s extending his contract means that he is extremely happy there, that he has found his place and that he feels valued there and he has the chemistry that I know with the players, the fans and obviously with the ownership.

‘I want the best for him and if he’s extended his contract it’s because he is very happy and he feels that it is the best place for him to continue his career. So congratulations.

‘Knowing him and his ambitions and how competitive he is, unfinished business means that he wants to win every competition, every year. For sure.

‘If he needs to win the four domestic trophies again and he can do it, I’m sure he’s going to try to do it. Obviously Europe is a massive thing and he really wants to move the club towards that Champions League win and that’s on his way.

‘I think medium and long-term, that was one of the things that he wanted to achieve so I’m sure that it will be a focal point.’
