Guardiola Clinched Third LMA Manager of the Year Award in Six Seasons

LMA Manager Award Winner 2023

The City boss has once again led the team with distinction this term, winning the Premier League title for the fifth time in six years, as well as qualifying for the final of both the Champions League and FA Cup.

City secured the Premier League title with three matches to spare and ended the season five points ahead of second-placed Arsenal.

In our 38 league games this term, we won 28 and scored a remarkable 94 goals, more than any other side in Europe’s major leagues.

A historic Treble is now a possibility as City face Manchester United in the FA Cup final on June 3 and Inter in the Champions League final on June 10.

Guardiola also won the LMA prize in 2018 and 2021 and, reflecting on his latest award, paid tribute to the other managers nominated for the award and the City support staff who have helped him throughout the campaign.

“I would like to thank everyone involved in me being named LMA Manager of the Year,” he said.

“First of all, I want to share it with my fellow nominees. They have all done an incredible job this season.

“This trophy is not normally awarded for how good a manager you are, but for what you win. I am at an incredible football club and without all of the support that I have had throughout my time here, this would not have been possible.

“Of course, I also want to thank all of the players for the incredible job that they have done to help us this season.”

Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added:

“Pep is a master of his craft and totally deserves this recognition. Every single day his total focus is on ensuring Manchester City are the best they can be on and off the pitch.

“He sets incredibly high standards and has raised the level of this football club. His mentality and dedication have made City better, there is no doubt about that.

“The success he has had this season is clear, but the style of football has, once again, been exceptional. I want to say a huge congratulations to Pep and his staff.”

Everyone at Manchester City would like to send their congratulations to Pep on this well-deserved award.
