PEP GUARDIOLA’S LEAGUE TITLES AS A MANAGER
Barcelona: La Liga – 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11
Bayern Munich: Bundesliga: 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16
Manchester City: Premier League: 2017/18
For Guardiola this is his 24th trophy as a manager, taking into account his spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Guardiola’s squad contains an excellent array of players, with midfielder Kevin de Bruyne having particularly stood out with some superb displays.
City also won the Carabao Cup earlier this campaign and Guardiola will hope that his team can now achieve even further glory next season, with the Champions League surely in his sights after their exit against Liverpool at the quarter-final stage.
This season City have been beaten just twice in the Premier League and, even thought they were unable to secure the title against United last week, their dominance of the division this season has now been confirmed.
