LMA Manager of the Year: Pep Guardiolaby Jack Kitson / 16 May 2018, 08:54Tweet
Pep Guardiola capped off a stunning season after he was voted the 2017/18 LMA Manager of the Year.
The Spaniard, who was also crowned the Premier League Manager of the Year, memorably led Man City to top-flight glory with a whopping 100 points, smashing a host of records along the way.
And now his efforts have been recognised by fellow gaffers who voted for the award.
Guardiola, who is the fourth foreign boss to receive the honour, still has someway to go before he catches David Moyes, who bagged the award a total of three times during his Everton tenure, although at the moment he’s jobless after his contract at West Ham came to an end.
Not for the first time this season Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock lost out to Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santos who won the Championship’s accolade.
Although Warnock didn’t leave the event empty handed, after he was presented with the LMA Special Achievement award for winning a record eighth promotion last term.
When the LMA Manager of the Year nominees were announced, Paul Hurst’s absence was greeted with widespread shock, however the Shrewsbury Town landed the League One gong following a superb season with the Shrews, which could yet end in promotion up to the Championship.
Down in League Two there were no surprises as Accrington Stanley’s title winning boss John Coleman deservedly scooped the prize.
Elsewhere, Chelsea Ladies head coach Emma Hayes won The Women's Super League 1 Manager of the Year, while Millwall Lionesses boss Lee Burch was handed the Super League 2 prize.
