With August set to turn into September, at midnight, we are at that stage of the new season where the first manager of the month is set to be named.
Today, on the last day of August, the four nominees for the reward have been announced, with the candidates being:
• Javi Garcia (Watford)
• Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool)
• Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham Hotspur)
and, our very own
• Maurizio Sarri
By some strange quirk of fate, or it could even be common sense, the four nominees are in charge of the four teams that, in the opening three matches of the Premier League campaign, have a 100% record.
Which, in our opinion, makes the choice of a winner very difficult.
But, because of my strong dislike of everything related to Tottenham Hotspur or Liverpool, I’d give it to either Sarri or Garcia.
How about just flipping a coin, heads Sarri wins tails Garcia loses!
Seriously though, who do you think deserves the accolade for the month of August?
Please feel free to drop your nominations into the comments facility beneath this article.
