Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been named the LMA Manager of the Season at the awards ceremony this evening.

The Spaniard, in his second year at City has guided the blues to a Premier League and League Cup double, whilst breaking records along the way.

Guardiola was named Manager of the Month four times in succession from September to December as the blues opened a huge gap at the top of the table, by winning all but two of their games in the first half of the season.

City won the League Cup with a 3-0 win over Arsenal and secured the league title with five games to spare, when they won 3-1 at Tottenham and nearest rivals Manchester United lost at home to West Brom.

The blues won an incredible 32 games from thirty eight, losing just two and drawing four on their way to the title.

It is the first time a City manager has won the award, and has more often than not been presented to the title winning manager. However, previous bosses Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini were both overlooked for the award in favour of Alan Pardew and Tony Pulis respectively

Congratulations to Pep, hopefully this will be the first of many.
