Pep Guardiola named Premier League Manager of the year

In a contest against competent shortlisted Managers, he emerged deserving over: Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta,  Roberto De Zerbi the man in the dug out for Brighton, Aston Villa’s Unai Emery,  Eddie Howe who has qualified Newcastle for the Champions League and Fulham’s Marco Silva.

The Spaniard has bagged the award four times since his seven years coaching career in the English Premier League with the Cityzens after he secured the award after title-winning campaigns in 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2020/21.

He superintended Manchester City to clinch the Premier League trophy three season consecutively and the fifth out of six years. He stands at the touch line leading the Cityzens to their treble dream after wining the Premier League trophy.

He has managed to sail the Cityzens to the final of the Champions League against Inter Milan at Instabul after they trailed the White Angels of Real Madrid in a 4-0 win at the Etihad Stadium.

After a 6-1 ‘demolition’ derby against Manchester United at the Etihad stadium, they look forward to battle it out with their rivals in the FA Cup final Derby at the Wembley Stadium this Saturday, 3rd June, 2023.

Successfully closing the season with 89 points ahead of title contenders Arsenal who spent 248 days top of the table, two of Guardiola’s players were awarded for their outstanding performance in the league which was an icing on the cake.

Belgian Midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne was named the PlayMaker of the Year as well as ‘unstopable’ Norwegian striker, Erling Haaland bagged two honours: the Player of the season cum Young Player of the Season award.

Guardiola comes off as the second manager in Premier League history to have won more than three awards after Manchester United’s Sir Alex Ferguson.
