Danish manager recieves accolade from League Managers’ Association.
Michael Laudrup has won the recognition of his peers for his exploits with Swansea this season according to Sky Sports.
The Danish manager came first in a survey of members in the League Managers’ Association who were asked their opinion on the most impressive manager of the year.
Laudrup received overwhelming support from his peers, securing nearly half of all the ballots cast.
The former Barcelona and Real Madrid star has guided Swansea to League Cup glory this year after a 5-0 defeat of Bradford City at Wembley, and looks set to guide the Swans to a comfortable top-half finish in the Premier League.
Speaking to the Official Swansea website, Laudrup said, ‘It’s always an honour to receive recognition, but I always consider them more important when they come from your colleagues.
‘I felt the same as a player and that hasn’t changed now that I’m a manager.
‘It’s something special coming from your colleagues because they are the ones you are competing with on a weekly basis on and off the pitch.’
Laudrup received further recognition as his summer acquisition Michu was voted best new recruit, while Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling was named as best young player.
