By Babajide Labinjo-

Manchester City Manager, Pep Guardiola has been named the Barclays Manager of the Season for the second consecutive year after guiding his club to consecutive Premier League titles.

The Spaniard’s team won the English Premier League title on the final day after a 4-1 victory away to Brighton & Hove Albion, securing 98 points, the second highest point by a Premier league team in a season behind only the 100 they attained last season.

Guardiola said;"It’s an honour to receive this award," Guardiola told the dinner in a video message.

"I want to share it with my players because they are the artists of everything, to my staff because we fought a lot [against] all the managers in the Premier League, especially, Jurgen Klopp, an incredible contender to face till the end.

"It was a pleasure to play against all of them and hopefully do big, big battles again to win an incredible title."

The 48-year-old beat fellow nominees Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, Nuno Espirito Santo and Maurico Pochettino after votes from a panel of football experts and the public were combined to decide the winner.
