Guardiola won his sixth Premier League title in eight seasons with Manchester City and set a Premier League record by winning his fourth consecutive title with the team, becoming the only team to achieve this feat in the history of the Premier League.

Asked for the secret of his side’s success, Guardiola told Sky Sports: “I don’t know! Work a lot. I respect them a lot. Be humble, incredible work ethic. One game, one game, one game – you can’t think in November that you’re going to win it.

“Evolving it is not. The sport director gives me these players and I think OK what is the best position for them? We can’t play a false nine with [Erling] Haaland, we adapt the skills to the players. Not because I have an idea and every player had to do it. We adapt to the players.

“We were without [Erling] Haaland for many months, Julian [Alvarez] did an amazing job and Phil [Foden] has this talent. On the big stage, in the big moment he did. Amazing players but with Phil we have an extra thing.”

Guardiola has hinted that next season could be his last with City.

“The reality is I am closer to leaving than staying. We have talked with the club – my feeling is that I want to stay now. I will stay next season and during the season we will talk. But eight or nine years – we will see.”
