The Spaniard becomes the first City manager to win either of these coveted awards with the League Managers Association Manager (LMA) of the Year awarded by fellow professional managers and regarded as the most prestigious managerial award in English football.

The LMA vote for the manager takes in all aspects of management and rarely goes to the boss of the Premier League champions with Alan Pardew and Tony Pulis past winners.
