Pep Guardiola Wins Premier League Manager Of The Season For Fifth Time

It is the fifth time Guardiola has won the award, making him the second most successful in that category after former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who leads the way with 11.

Guardiola led Manchester City to the Premier League title this season, with this triumph their fourth in succession.

The Spaniard came out on top in a five-man shortlist that also included Andoni Iraola, Unai Emery, Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta.

"I want to share it, especially with Mikel [Arteta] for the incredible job he has done until the last game, bringing us to our limits," said Guardiola.

"Of course, for Jurgen [Klopp], for the unforgettable battles for many, many years. And Unai Emery, making something unbelievable again to bring Aston Villa to the Champions League.

"And Andoni Iraola, with Bournemouth, being his first season in the Premier League, doing what he has done and coming back from a tough start to the season.

"It is an honour to be alongside all of them and to win this trophy. We will defend this award as best as possible in the future."
