Claudio Ranieri, Leicester manager.
Ranieri received the Premier League accolade, with
Brighton’s Chris Hughton taking the Championship award.
The Italian is only the second non-British or Irish manager
to win the prestigious accolade after Arsenal’s Arsene
Wenger, who won it in both 2002 and 2004.
In the cause of the season, the Leicester Boss picked up
three manager of the month awards and was also named
the Italian manager of the year back home.
Meanwhile, English Premier League clubs Chelsea and
Tottenham have been issued a heavy fine to the tune of
