Pep Guardiola was named Premier League Manager of the Year on Tuesday after guiding Manchester City to an unprecedented fourth successive title.

The Spanish coach has previously won the award four times since he joined the club in 2016. With six league titles, he is now the joint second-most successful coach in the history of English football.

"This award reflects the hard work and excellence of the people at the Club in all departments," Guardiola said.

"I am so proud to be the manager of this group of players and work alongside the brilliant coaches and support staff every day.

"Winning four titles in a row is one of the proudest achievements of my career. This is the toughest league in the world and our competitors have played some incredible football."

Guardiola saw off competition from Arsenal's Mikel Arteta, Aston Villa's Unai Emery, Bournemouth's Andoni Iraola and Liverpool's Juergen Klopp.

There is an argument to be made that this season’s title triumph is the greatest in Guardiola’s illustrious career.

After last season’s treble success, he has motivated his team to again scale the mountain.

It would not have been a surprise if City’s motivation levels dropped on the back of last season’s success. But that wasn’t the case as Manchester City only lost three games all season to create history.

With Guardiola setting the standards, his players followed his lead to create history. It is yet another remarkable achievement by the City manager and his squad.
