The Swansea boss was named the Premier League's most impressive so far this season in a poll conducted by the managers' union, winning almost half the votes.

Laudrup has built on Brendan Rodgers' work in south Wales, establishing City in the top half of the league and delivering the Capital One Cup in his first nine months at the club.

He told the club website: "It's always an honour to receive recognition, but I always consider them more important when they come from your colleagues.

Laudrup's bargain £2m signing Michu was voted best new recruit in the LMA survey, while Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling was named best young player.

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
