Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has been named League Managers Association (LMA) Premier League Manager of the Season, ahead of Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp, Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino and Wolves’ Nuno Espirito Santo.
The 48-year-old has picked up the award for the second year in a row, after he oversaw City’s successful title tilt against Liverpool.
Guardiola’s men amassed a 98 points, the second-highest in Premier League, a total only beaten by City themselves the previous year.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss, is just the third Premier League manager to retain the title after Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho.
“It’s an honour to receive this award.
“I want to share it with my players because they are the artists of everything, to my staff because we fought a lot [against] all the managers in the Premier League, especially Jurgen Klopp, an incredible contender to face till the end.
“It was a pleasure to play against all of them and hopefully do big, big battles again to win an incredible title,” Guardiola said in a pre-recorded video shown at the LMA dinner on Tuesday.
