Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has been named the Barclays Premier League manager of the season, with Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany winning the player award.
Pardew was honored for his achievements at St James’ Park in transforming Newcastle into a challenger for UEFA Champions League qualification.
Pardew’s astute dealings in the transfer market brought the likes of Yohan Cabaye, Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse to the club and helped to produce an exciting brand of soccer.
Meanwhile, City defender Kompany was named Premier League player of the season after leading his club to the brink of the title.
Kompany recently scored the only goal in the Manchester derby which ensured City top spot on the table on goal difference with one game left to play.
Providing City’s result at home to Queens Park Rangers on Sunday is not worse than Manchester United’s at Sunderland, the club will become champion for the first time since 1968.
Watch the thrilling climax to the Barclays Premier League season at both ends of the table exclusively LIVE and in HD on Fox Sports from 11.30pm (EST) on Sunday, May 13.
