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.

"I felt the same as a player and that hasn't changed now that I'm a manager.

"It's something special coming from your colleagues because they are the ones you are competing with on a weekly basis on and off the pitch."

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.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
