It seems absurd but the manager who won the Premier League after leading the table from “day one” until the end is not going to win a single “Manager of the Month Award” this season.
The same is for John Terry, the captain, the leader and the “rock” of Chelsea, for many people the real top-player of the team, without detracting anything to stunning Eden Hazard who, anyway, never won the prize either.
The only player in Chelsea squad that was awarded with the monthly prize was Diego Costa back in August, due to his impressive start in the Premier League.
It’s right that to win the league is far better and more important that win these individual awards, but it seems also really absurd that the best team of the Premier League never got any recognition.
Both Mourinho and Terry were nominated to win this month, but at the end the winners were Nigel Pearson, who’s undergoing an impressive good run with Leicester City, and Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, who scored five goals in four games in April.
