The Premier League has now reached its most crucial phase and there have been some managers who have done an amazing job for their teams this season. Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson won the award a record 11 times including in his last season. Now that he is out of the picture a new breed on managers have emerged who are curretly vying for the title. Here is a list of top 5 managers who could win the Manager of the Season award at the end of this campaign.
#1 Brendan Rodgers
The Liverpool manager inherited a team who finished 8th before he took the reigns but has now successfully made them into the force they once were. The Irishman has done a brilliant job with Liverpool who are currently 2nd in the League this term. The 41-year-old has made some shrewd signings in the form of Philippe Coutinho, Daniel Sturridge and Simon Mignolet who are important players for the Merseyside club this season. Rodgers's faith in young players has also drawn praise from critics.
Liverpool look like genuine title contenders with Rodgers at the helm. The Reds have won all but one game at Anfield this season which is an amazing record. Champions League football is almost guaranteed next season and Brendan will hopefully do well against some of the biggest managers in Europe. The Manager of the Season award would be a fitting tribute to this genius.
