Wolverhampton Wanderers manager, Bruno Lage, has been named the Premier League Manager of the Month for January 2022.
Lage who joined Wolves in the summer beat the likes of Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Norwich’s Dean Smith to the monthly award.
The Portuguese who replaced Nuno Espirito Santo at the Molineux “is having an impressive debut season in the Premier League and led his side to victory in all three of their January matches, earning Lage the accolade for the first time,” the EPL wrote.
After a slow start to his reign at the club, the former Monaco boss appears to have found his feet with Wolves as he led them to three victories in January, including the 1-0 win at Manchester United, the 3-1 win over Southampton 3-1 and a 2-1 victory at Brentford.
It leaves the West Midlands club just four points outside the top four, but Lage is more focused on their own performances than a push for European football.
“I’m very proud because it was a good month for us,” Lage said. “The performance of the team, it was very good and we achieved three wins.”
“It was an amazing performance because we had that personality to not to be afraid of anything, to play our game, and we played very well,” he said.
“We want to continue to win, to find the right consistency with personality, to play our game,” he said.
“And, also, to continue to be, not just the Manager of the Month, but the right man and the right manager to my players, to my chairman and also for the fans.
“So, that’s the goal, every day to be the best man, to be the right man in the place to take Wolves to a better position.”
Lage is the first Wolves head coach to claim the award since his countryman Nuno Espirito Santo did so in October 2020.
