Pep Guardiola has won the Premier League Manager of the Season award after another league title with Manchester City.
Guardiola’s side recovered from losing out to Liverpool in 2019-20 and led the league for much of the season, eventually winning the title when Manchester United lost to Leicester City last month, although they triumphed having been 8th on Christmas Day.
Despite a 12-point gap to second-place United at the end of the campaign, the 50-year-old said this title was “the hardest one”, having previously won the Premier League in 2017-18 and 2018-19.
Guardiola beat Marcelo Bielsa, who guided Leeds United to a sensational season, David Moyes of West Ham United, Brendan Rodgers of Leicester City and Ole Gunnar Solksjaer of Manchester United who finished second.
