On Wednesday, the League Manager’s Association announced their Manager of the Year winner for the campaign of 2018/19 and Sheffield United’s promotion winning gaffer Chris Wilder picked up the gong ahead of some impressive names.

The award is named the Sir Alex Ferguson trophy in recognition of his achievements at Old Trafford following the Premier League rebrand, and our 51-year-old beat off competition from the likes of Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) and Jurgen Kloop (Liverpool), and he also lifted the Championship Manager of the Year award as well.

A thoroughly deserved winner, especially when you look at relative spend and with two promotions in three years under his belt, it’s understandable as to why he’s now become only the fifth manager in the LMA’s history to lift the award whilst not being in the Premier League itself.

With another successful season behind us as we prepare for a top flight return in 2019/20, Blades fans were rightly congratulating the gaffer on his achievement.
