Pep Guardiola has been named Barclays Premier League Manager of the Season for 2017/18 after his Manchester City side not only won the title, but did so in style, smashing records and becoming the first centurions in the league’s history.

Guardiola deservedly picked up the award on Tuesday after becoming the first ever coach to win the Manager of the Month award four months in a row during the season.
Pep’s City side won 32 of their 38 league matches this season, drawing 4 and losing only 2. And the manner in which they won the league will not be forgotten, with a record-breaking 106 goals and only 27 conceded – fewer than any other club.
The Catalan beat five other nominees: Rafael Benitez (Newcastle), Sean Dyche (Burnley), Roy Hodgson (Crystal Palace), Chris Hughton (Brighton) and Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool).
On the same night, Pep also picked up the prestigious LMA Managers’ Manager of the Year award, completing a personal double.
He's done it again!
