Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been named the Sir Alex Ferguson LMA Manager of the Year and the Premier League Manager of the Season

The Irish Independent reported that the Catalan was voted by his fellow professional managers in England for the LMA, which is widely considered the most prestigious managerial award in English football.

The LMA is voted by managers in the top four tier divisions in England, but it has rarely been won by the boss of the Premier League champions with Alan Pardew and Tony Pulis being the past winners.

Meanwhile, Guardiola was voted by a panel of experts which include sponsors, journalists and former players and the managers for the Premier League Manager of the Season award.

Guardiola has become the first City manager to win either of the awards after leading the club to a truly dominant Premier League title-winning campaign with their nearest rivals Manchester United finishing a staggering 19 points behind in second place.

The Blues set a record 100 points during in the Premier League this season as well as breaking a host of other records in the process.

Guardiola has now become the fourth overseas coach to be named Premier League Manager of the Season.
