Pochettino, Son win EPL April Awards

(Last Updated On: )



Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has won April’s Manager of the Month award – his first this season – while Spurs winger Heung-Min Son has scooped the player of the month award.

The Argentinian helped Spurs to six consecutive Premier League victories as his side chased down Chelsea for the title last month, scoring 16 goals and conceding just once.

At home, Tottenham thrashed both Bournemouth and Watford 4-0 before a 2-0 victory in the last-ever north London derby against Arsenal at White Hart Lange, which will be demolished at the end of the season to make way for their new 61,000-seater stadium.

The run came to an end in their first game in May – a defeat to West Ham all but ending their title hopes – but Pochettino’s team remain on course to finish second – their highest-ever finish in the Premier League – with a record points tally.

Pochettino last won the Premier League Manager of the Month award in February 2016.

Meanwhile, Pochettino’s lively winger Son has won his first player of the month award for April.

Heung-Min Son has been named April’s Player of the Month.

The South Korea international scored five goals during Spurs’ winning run, including two goals in the home win over the Hornets.

Son considered leaving Spurs last summer but has been instrumental in their push for the title this season.
