Guardiola smashes Mourinho record

English Premier League

Pep Guardiola has become the fastest manager in the history of English football to record 200 victories with a single top-flight club.

Guardiola recorded his 200th victory across all competitions as Manchester City's manager on Saturday after his Premier League title contenders recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over West Ham United.

In doing so, the Spaniard became the fastest-ever manager to reach the milestone with a single club in England's top-flight after achieving the feat in just his 273rd match in charge of the Citizens, according to Opta.

That saw him break the record previously held by long-time rival and three-time Premier League-winning manager Jose Mourinho, who reached the milestone in 309 matches across his two spells with Chelsea.

Guardiola is also the first manager to reach the 200-wins mark in fewer than 300 matches and bettered the returns of former Liverpool managers Kenny Dalglish and Bob Paisley, as well as former Leeds United boss Don Revie en route to his new record.
