EPL Award: Arsenal Boss Arsene Wenger Named Manager Of The Month For October

0 11

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has been named Barclays Premier League Manager for the Month of October, after guiding his team to four consecutive victories last month.

The Gunners sit joint top of the Premier League following masterminding victories over Manchester United, Watford, Everton and Swansea in October as Wenger picked up his 15th manager of the month and only his second in 2015.

Wenger’s side netted 11 times in these four victories and conceded just once.

Wenger is the Premier League’s second-most successful manager of all time when it comes to the monthly awards, with Sir Alex Ferguson’s record of 27 prizes the only one to better the Frenchman’s 15.

Speaking after receiving the award, the 66-year-old said: “It is always good because it just reminds you that – especially after a defeat like we had on Wednesday night [5-1 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich] – we have not done too badly in the last month.

“You worry as well about maintaining the run for coming months. That is what we want to do always.”

When asked about that emphatic victory over United, Wenger added: “That was the highlight because there are very few matches in your life where it all clicks perfectly in the first 20 minutes and that is one of the games.

“We had a difficult start against West Ham and after that we have responded very well and are now on a good run. Our target of course is to maintain it.”

Meanwhile, 28-year-old Leicester City striker, Jamie Vardy has been named player of the month for October, after he scored five goals in four games for the Foxes, as he helped his side claim three wins in October and move up to third on the table.
