Speaking after receiving the award in front of the squad, Howe said: ‘I’m very pleased, obviously, and it was a nice feeling, but it was nice to share it with my team.

‘My coaching team, all the staff and all the players, who, ultimately, have done the important bit of winning on the pitch. 

‘A lot questions were asked of our resilience and resolve, and ability to bounce back from what seemed, at some stages, I wouldn’t say impossible, but a very difficult moment and that’s where the players have really stepped up.

‘They deserve a lot of credit for how they’ve attacked this spell of games and confidence has returned with every win.’

‘The supporters, since I’ve come to the football club, have been absolutely brilliant, home and away. But, the home atmosphere is just so unique. So, you can hear that roar, that feeling.

‘It can only hope inspire the players and in those home games that we’ve had, no doubt, it’s made a difference.’ 

It is the fourth occasion Howe has claimed the award, having previously won it three times with Bournemouth.
