Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola emerges as the Premier League manager for the third time in his career.
The Spanish-born tactician claimed the prestigious prize after guiding the Citizens to win the English top-flight title at the end of the 2020-21 season.
This is also the third time the Spaniard will be winning the EPL since he became City boss in the summer of 2016.
During the cause of their campaign last term, Guardiola made history after his team became the first club to win the trophy despite finding themselves eighth on the table on Christmas Day.
However, guiding his side to a 15-match winning streak helped them upstaged Liverpool to emerge victorious in the league eventually.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager has now joined Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho as the only coaches to have won the prize three times, while only Sir Alex Ferguson has more.
Meanwhile, the three men are also the only managers in the history of the EPL who can match Guardiola's three title wins.
Pep outshined managers like Marcelo Bielsa, David Moyes, Brendan Rodgers, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to win the award this season.
Also, Man City star Ruben Dias was voted the Player of the Season, Phil Foden won the Hublot Young Player of the Season and Liam Delap named the PL2 Player of the Season.
