Coppell takes boss gong
14 Oct 2006 - 08:04:12
Reading boss Steve Coppell has won the nod to be named as the Premiership Manager of the Month for September.
Coppell guided the Royals to seven points from a possible nine last month, as the Premiership newcomers saw off Manchester City and Sheffield United and secured a creditable 1-1 draw at home to Manchester United.
He told BBC Radio Five Live: "This is a real surprise for me, I must admit.
"It is testimony to what everyone is doing at the club. I get the prize, but it is everyone else who is doing all the work I can assure you.
"To win this so early in the season for a newly promoted side is a reward for all the hard work that has gone in during pre-season and the early part of this campaign.
"I wish it was April or May because it would have a bit more significance, but the whole club can take pride in this."
