Pep Guardiola has claimed the 26th trophy of his elite managerial career with Manchester City's Premier League title triumph.

It was also his second major success of the season after February's Carabao Cup victory and he could add a third if City beat Watford in the FA Cup final next week.

Having also won the Premier League and Carabao Cup last season, as well as the Community Shield last August, the Spaniard has now picked up six pieces of silverware in three seasons in England.

The 48-year-old former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss arrived at the Etihad Stadium with a big reputation and, after an uncharacteristic trophyless first season, is now living up to his billing.

The main challenge next season will surely be to deliver success in the Champions League, a competition he won twice during his years in charge of Barcelona from 2008 to 2012.

While at the Nou Camp he also won LaLiga three times, the Copa del Rey twice, the Spanish Super Cup three times, the UEFA Super Cup on two occasions and the FIFA Club World Cup twice.

Success followed him to Bayern, who he guided to three Bundesliga crowns, two German Cups, a UEFA Super Cup and a FIFA Club World.
