Pep Guardiola, king of leagues

He has won eight La Liga, Bundesliga and Premier League titles

Guardiola vuelve a ganar la Premier con el Manchester City | Perform

Pep Guardiola won the league with Man City on Sunday, making it eight league wins in 10 seasons as a coach in the elite - nine in 11 if you include promotion with Barca B to the Segunda from the Tercera in 07-08.

The Catalan coach has won 26 titles in his career, and that will be 27 if they win the FA Cup final against Watford on May 18.

Pep has delivered at a level few can match. For example Liverpool and Klopp got 97 points, a record for second in the league, bigger than any in the history of the Premier League - bar the 100 and 98 Pep's City has obtained in the last two years.

He almost seems to have an effect on the national teams of the country he works on too. Spain won the World Cup in 2010 while Pep was at Barca, and Germany lifted it in 2014, when at Bayern Munich. England reached the semis in Russia in 2018.
