Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola captured his first Bundesliga title with the Bavarian giants last night, with their quite frightening dominance of the German domestic scene resulting in their procession towards glory being secure with seven games to spare.
Guardiola arrived at the Allianz Arena with an embarrassment of riches at his disposal but had the pressure to match, with Jupp Heynckes moved aside despite winning a historic treble, the best season Bayern have ever produced.
The former Barca coach looks well placed to match that campaign though, or perhaps even better it, with his 17th piece of silverware in only his sixth season as a coach.
That quite amazing record earns Guardiola a place among the 11 most successful managers of the post-war era, with scope to climb the ladder and become the most decorated club coach of all time.
Guardiola has some way to go though before closing in on that achievement, with GMS crunching the numbers to find out which managers have enjoyed more sustained success than any of their storied rivals over the last 69 years.
