Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola has been named League Managers’ Association Manager of the Year.

Guardiola led City to a third Premier League title in four seasons, 12 points clear of nearest rivals Manchester United and a fourth straight League Cup.

City will face Chelsea in the Champions League final in Porto on Saturday to win the competition for the first time.

Guardiola previously won the award in recognition of overseeing City’s 2017-18 record campaign when they became the first team in England’s top history to reach 100 points in a single season.

“I am very happy to win this award for the second time, but such an award is only possible when a manager is surrounded by top professionals,” said Guardiola.

“My players were fantastic – their dedication and professionalism never wavered, even in what was the most challenging season we have ever faced.

“And my staff deserve the highest praise too. I am so happy to have a team of people who give everything every day to make sure Manchester City is the best we can be.”

“This award is dedicated to and shared with them.”
