Louis van Gaal was piped to the manager’s award by Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
Pochettino bagged the Premier League manager of the month award guiding Spurs to win all their three of their Premier League fixtures in September, including an impressive 4-1 win over leaders Manchester City.
It is the first manager of the month award for Pochettino since the Argentinian took over at Spurs, although he also won it with Southampton in January 2013.
Pochettino said the award was recognition for the efforts of everyone at the club.
“It’s a collective honour because we must recognise first our players, all coaching staff and the fans,” he told the club website.
“It’s good not just for me but for the whole club. It’s very important. Okay it’s ‘manager of the month’ but we need to recognise all people involved in the team. The whole club deserve this award.”
