Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has been named Barclays Manager of the Season. Triffic!
“I’m delighted to receive the award but it’s a team effort with Kevin (Bond), Joe (Jordan), Clive (Allen), Tony (Parks), Tim (Sherwood), Les (Ferdinand) and all the coaching and fitness staff,” Arry told his club’s official website.
“Really, I’m just part of the team. It’s all down to the players and what they’ve achieved. It’s down to them really and a real honour to receive it.”
The award was voted by a Barclays panel, which is made up of football’s governing bodies, the media and fans.
Redknapp becomes only the second manager since the formation of the Premier League to win the award without having won the league – George Burley won it after leading Ipswich Town to fifth place in 2000/01.
Spurs have done brilliantly well to qualify for the Champions League. They got pretty close to the FA Cup final too. I know there are a lot of Roy Hodgson fans out there, and Carlo Ancelotti has done very well in his first season in England, but the more I think about it, the more I like the choice of Redknapp.
Do you agree with the decision?
