After leading Manchester City through a phenomenal season in which they set and broke many records, it was expected that awards and accolades will fall on Pep Guardiola.

That was the case on Tuesday night as Guardiola was voted the Sir Alex Ferguson LMA Manager of the Year and the Premier League Manager of the Season.

The Spaniard becomes the first City manager to win either of these coveted awards with the League Managers Association Manager (LMA) of the Year awarded by fellow professional managers.

The LMA vote for the manager takes in all aspects of management and rarely goes to the boss of the Premier League champions with Alan Pardew and Tony Pulis being past winners.

Pep is only the sixth manager to win the vote and be manager of the top-flight champions.

The Premier League Manager of the Season was voted for by a panel of experts which include sponsors, journalists, former players and co-managers.
