Dutchman wins the prize for the first time after transforming Man Utd and taking them up to fifth
Erik ten Hag has been voted Barclays Manager of the Month for September, winning the award for the first time.
The 52-year-old is the first Dutchman to claim the prize since Ronald Koeman for Southampton in January 2016, and the latest Manchester United manager to take the award after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last did so in January 2019.
Ten Hag transformed Man Utd’s fortunes, beating Leicester City before ending Arsenal’s perfect start to the season to extend his side’s winning run and take them up to fifth.
He won after votes from the public were combined with those of a panel of football experts, beating fellow nominees Antonio Conte and Gary O’Neil.
In some betting houses, you have the odds for predicting September’s best coach already.
