Manchester United have scooped the awards for both manager and player of the month (August) after the club’s great start to the Premiership season.
Sir Alex Ferguson has been named the Barclays manager of the month for August and Ryan Giggs, 32, has won the player of the month prize.
During August, United beat Fulham, Charlton and Watford, scoring 10 goals in those three league matches.
Giggs, despite playing over 600 games, has never won the monthly award before.
“The awards are testimony to the fantastic manner in which United have opened the new campaign, playing an exciting brand of fast and attacking football,” said Jim Hytner, from the Barclays Awards Panel.
“It’s hard to believe Giggs has never received the accolade before, but he thoroughly deserves the award for the performances he’s put in during August.”
