He was named after a record-breaking season with Manchester City.

The Spaniard masterminded City’s Premier League title triumph with a points record of 100, with his side amassing 106 goals along the way.

The League Managers Association (LMA) award is voted for by fellow professional bosses, with Guardiola seeing his achievements recognised by his peers.

Guardiola’s efforts could not be ignored, however, with the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach proving himself to be the best in the business.

He said after fending off competition from Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool), Sean Dyche (Burnley), Nuno Espirito Santo (Wolves), Neil Warnock (Cardiff) and John Coleman (Accrington Stanley): “All the other managers deserve this. They had an amazing season. You have to choose one, I was this one.

“We played good and we are happy for that. Of course, always I think the records are a consequence of our game, our consistency. To make these type of numbers you have to be solid for months, and not just a short period.

“I am at a fantastic club – it is a family. The organisation is excellent. I was at Barcelona and Bayern Munich. Manchester City – I feel at home.

“The investment was so important and the quality of our players made the difference. When I was a little boy I always say England was a little bit like a paradise.

“Everybody wants to be here. I want to say thank you to the Premier League for giving me the opportunity to be here, to share with my family, living here in England.

“The last 10 years nobody has won back-to-back so that is the challenge.”
