Mike Jackson has been named April’s Barclays Manager of the Month after making history with Burnley. The acting head coach became the first Burnley manager to go unbeaten in his first four top-flight matches.
Mike took over as an interim coach after the sacke of manager Sean Dyche.
Dyche had been at Burnley since 2012 and led them to two promotions to the Premier League. He was the League’s longest-reigning manager.
However, this season Klopp hasn’t won the award. Which is quite a disappointment to many PL supporters. Many predicted Liverpool would end up below the top three; but he’d got the team fighting hard for the title in all fronts. Closing a 14-point gap at the top with the lowest amount of losses in the league so far.
Following is the 2021/22 Barclays Manager winners:
▪▪▪ August: Nuno Espirito Santo (TOT)
▫▫▫ September: Mikel Arteta (ARS)
