Arsenal pair Wenger and Ramsey win September awards
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and his manager Arsene Wenger have won the respective Player of the Month and Manager of the Month awards for September, ESPN is reporting.
Wenger led Arsenal to three wins from three in September, with Premier League victories over Sunderland, Stoke City and Swansea City, results which have helped the Gunners to the top of the table.
He received the award ahead of Everton’s Roberto Martinez, who guided his side to 100% records in September, along with Southampton’s Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham Hotspur’s Andre Villas-Boas, who oversaw two wins and a draw from their three games.
Wales international Ramsey has been instrumental in Arsenal’s success so far this season. During September’s Premier League matches, the Welshman was on target on four occasions, taking his overall tally for the campaign to eight.
Wenger said of Ramsey’s impressive form: “Aaron has matured and we are seeing the results of his obsession to always make himself better. In the past, we always saw him getting into good positions in the box and not quite scoring, but he has move his game on now.
“He had a difficult period in the middle of last season when people became impatient with him and he lost confidence, but I never lost faith in him and we can see what he is producing now.”
