By  |  0 Comments

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has added the English Premier League trophy to his medal haul as manager on Sunday after city rivals Manchester United lost to West Brom at home.

The 47-year-old has previously won league titles in Spain and Germany, as well as two Champions Leagues with Barca.

Since Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan took ownership of the club in 2008, City have won seven trophies, adding an FA Cup, two League Cups and an FA Community Shield to their league titles.

It is City’s third title in seven seasons and a first under the Spaniard in his second campaign in charge as they have dominated this year’s title race, scoring 93 goals and losing just twice so far.

It is Manchester City’s third title in seven years and fifth top-flight title.

City set a Premier League record of 18 consecutive wins on their way to the title, and have beaten every other side in the division this season at least once.

They looked on course to go the whole league season unbeaten before losing 4-3 to Liverpool at Anfield in January.

City were knocked out of the Champions League on Tuesday after their quarter-final defeat by Liverpool, and were beaten by League One side Wigan in the fifth round of the FA Cup in February.

However, Guardiola’s side did win the Carabao Cup by beating Arsenal at Wembley.
