Pep Guardiola has been named the 2023/24 Barclays Manager of the Season after an historic campaign with Manchester City.

Guardiola's Man City became the first side in history to win four consecutive Premier League titles.

Guardiola says he "will defend" his Manager of the Season award in 2024/25 but that he wants to share this season's trophy with his fellow nominees who pushed Man City to be their best.

"I want to share it, yes, oh yes! Especially with Mikel [Arteta] for the incredible job he has done until the last game, bringing us to our limits," said Guardiola.

"Of course, for Jurgen [Klopp], for the unforgettable battles for many, many years. And Unai Emery, making something unbelievable again to bring Aston Villa to the [UEFA] Champions League.

"And Andoni Iraola, with Bournemouth, being his first season in the Premier League, doing what he has done, coming back from the tough start of the season.

"It is an honour to be alongside all of them and to win this trophy. We will defend this award as best as possible in the future."

Five-time winner

Guardiola wins the award for a fifth time, having also claimed it in four of his five previous title-winning campaigns, in 2017/18, 2018/19, 2020/21 and 2022/23. 

Only Sir Alex Ferguson has received the accolade more than the 53-year-old Spaniard.

Sir Alex Ferguson 11
Pep Guardiola 5
Jose Mourinho 3
Arsene Wenger 3
Jurgen Klopp 2

Guardiola's win makes it a 2023/24 Man City awards double, after Phil Foden was named the EA SPORTS Player of the Season.

Guardiola won after votes by the public were combined with those of a panel of football experts to decide who would top a five-man shortlist that also featured Arteta, Emery, Iraola and Klopp.

Man City will now look to end their campaign by doing a Premier League and FA Cup double. They face Manchester United in the FA Cup final on Saturday.
