Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been voted the manager of the month award for August in an online poll conducted by the Premier League
The Portuguese tactician had made a flying start at Old Trafford, winning all three of his side’s first three matches against Bournemouth, Southampton, and Hull City.
A few years back under David Moyes and recently Louis Van Gaal, the Red Devils have endured difficult times, but look back to their best under the guidance of the Special One.
While the former Chelsea manager looks set to take home the prize, it is not yet official until a panel of former players and managers has their say on who should pick up the monthly gong.
Mourinho took 40% of the vote on the Premier League’s official Twitter page, ahead of arch-rival Pep Guardiola, who took charge of neighbors Manchester City in the summer.
Antonio Conte was second with 33%, after a strong start with Mourinho’s former club Chelsea
