Ten Hag, Rashford win coach, player of the month award




Manchester United’s Erik ten Hag and Marcus Rashford have won the Premier League’s manager and player of the month awards for September.

Ten Hag, 52, lost his first two competitive matches following his move from Ajax, but has since lead United to four consecutive league wins.

Victories against Liverpool and Southampton in August preceded wins over Leicester and Arsenal this month.

Marcus Rashford, 24, scored twice against Arsenal to fuel United’s rally.

Rashford, who also scored in the victory over Liverpool in August, picks up his first player-of-the-month award since January 2019.

He came top of a six-man shortlist that also included Bournemouth’s Philip Billing, Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne, Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Everton’s Alex Iwobi and Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey.

United’s winning has seen them rise from bottom of the Premier League after two matches to fifth. They played just two league matches in September after games against Crystal Palace and Leeds United were postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
