Brendan Rodgers


English Premier League side Manchester City have officially been crowned the league champions in England after a brilliant season that saw them recover from their stuttering start to the campaign. Their status as the new champions of the Premier League was confirmed on Tuesday night after their rivals Manchester United slumped to a home defeat against Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City at Old Trafford.

It continues a recent trend that has seen Pep Guardiola turn City into a formidable team that has been dominating the league in the last few years. As of the 1st of January earlier this year, many would not have thought City will become the eventual winners of the league title as they were languishing in the 8th position in the league table, with Liverpool sitting atop the pile at the time.
