Official: Manchester City Boss Pep Guardiola named Manager of the Season

The spanish man wins award for second consecutive year after keeping the Premier League title with Manchester City

Pep Guardiola was named Barclays' season coach after leading Manchester City to consecutive Premier League titles.

Guardiola, who also won the award last season, was announced as the 2018/19 winner at the annual League Leaders'
Association dinner on Tuesday evening.

The Spaniard's team were crowned champion on the last day thanks to a 4-1 victory at Brighton & Hove Albion, which
 took them to 98 points, the second most achieved in a season of PL, behind only the 100 they achieved in last season.

By beating second-placed Liverpool by one point, Guardiola became the third coach in PL's history to retain the title
 after Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho.

"It is an honor to receive this award," Guardiola said at dinner in a video message.

"I want to share it with my players because they are the artists of everything to my team because we fight a lot
against all the managers of the Premier League, especially Jurgen Klopp, an incredible candidate to face to the end.

"It was a pleasure playing against all of them and I hope to make big and big battles again to win an incredible title."

The 48-year-old rider beat compatriots Nuno Espirito Santo, Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino after the public votes were
 combined with those of a panel of football experts to decide the winner.
