Guardiola claims LMA award


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been crowned the League Managers’ Association Manager of the Season.

Guardiola guided City to a second successive Premier League title, beating Liverpool by a single point, and, having already won the Carabao Cup, his side will have the opportunity to complete the domestic treble if they defeat Watford in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and Wolves' Nuno Espirito Santo were also nominated for the award but the LMA opted to recognise Guardiola's achievements.

"I want to share this, of course, with my players, because they are the artists of everything, and to my staff because we fought a lot," Guardiola said.

"Also, for all the managers in the Premier League, especially Jurgen Klopp - he was an incredible contender to face until the end.

"It was a pleasure to play against all of them."

Chris Wilder, however, beat Guardiola to be named LMA Manager of the Year after guiding Sheffield United to the Premier League.
