Manchester city boss, Pep Guardiola bags Premier League Manager of the Season after retaining the Premier League title.
Guardiola was last season’s Premier League Manager of the Season and has again bagged the 2018/19’s at the League Managers Association annual awards dinner on Tuesday evening.
The Spaniard led city to their first back-toback title win after a 4-1 victory at Brighton & Hove Albion which took them to 98 points, the second-most ever reached in a PL season behind only the 100 they achieved last season.
Guardiola became only the third manager in PL history to retain the title, after Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho.
“It’s an honour to receive this award,” Guardiola told the dinner in a video message.
“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 emerged winner after votes from the public were combined with those of a panel of football experts to decide from fellow nominees Nuno Espirito Santo, Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino.
