After a season of retaining the Premier League title in a race that went all the way to the final day, it is no surprise that Pep Guardiola is getting some recognition for his achievements.
Absolute boss @PepTeam

The Manchester City boss was named in the 10-man shortlist for FIFA’s annual The Best awards for the category of male coach of the year (per FIFA’s official website), and Guardiola faces some stiff competition for the award.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is also in the mix for the award after guiding the Reds to a sixth Champions League triumph as well as giving City a good chase for the Premier League title.
Of course, City fans were happy about the news of their boss being nominated for the award, and supporters took to social media to praise Guardiola for his accomplishments last season.
Here is what some fans had to say…
