Breaking: Wenger wins Barclays Manager of the Month award and English striker wins player of the month
Arsene Wenger wins Barcleys Premier League manager of the month while player of the month award goes to Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.
The manager of the month award for October goes to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger after he led the Gunners to four straight victories last month. They have 11 goals in these four league wins and conceded only one goal.
Arsenal now are jointly top of the Premier League after defeating Manchester United, Watford, Everton and Swansea in October. The Frenchman picked up second manager of the month award this year and 15th one during his long career to pip Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri and Manchester City’s Manuel Pellegrini.
Stats say, only Alex Ferguson have more manager of the month awards than Arsene Wenger, as the former Manchester United manager claimed the honour 27 times.
The 66-year-old French manager Wenger could not be blamed if he is getting bored of collecting the Manager of the Month award by now, but he was happy as ever to pose with the award.
Apart from Wenger, Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy was awarded player of the month award as promising English frontman bagged five goals in four matches for his team by which Leicester claimed three victories last October.
The former Halifax Town striker has since played nine Premier League matches back to back with a goal, just one short of Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of scoring in ten straight matches. Vardy will definitely look to match the record when they play Newcastle after international break.
Vardy’s amazing run began on 29th August, when he came into limelight with a late equaliser against Bournemouth, after that he has scored in each top-flight encounter.
He bagged a brace in two of these matches, with Arsenal and Southampton. Vardy now has 12 goals this season, five ahead of his teammate Riyad Mahrez and Watford’s Odion Ighalo.
