Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, is a surprise exclusion in the 5-man list for the Manager of the Year prize at the Globe Soccer Awards.
The Spaniard guided Man City to a domestic treble, winning Premier League trophy title over close challenger Liverpool before capping it all with Carabao and FA Cup triumph, and lately Community Shield.
According DailyMail UK, the former Barcelona manager was knocked out of the list which has great names including Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp, ex-Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.
Erik guided his young machine to Dutch League glory while Allegri led Juventus to a record-staging Serie A league win with Ronaldo leading the attack-line for the Italian giants.
Klopp, who is a favourite for the prestigious prize, was instrumental to Liverpool's breakthrough to European success as they defeated Premier League rivals Spurs to win Champions League trophy at Wanda Metropolis stadium in Spain.
The annual award organised by the European Association of Player's Agents and the European Club Association will hold on December 29 in Dubai.
