UWE Rosler has been named the Championship Manager of the Month for February.
Latics won five of their six matches last month under the German – including an FA Cup triumph at Cardiff – to reignite their play-off push. And Rosler pipped Sean Dyche (Burnley), Steve McClaren (Derby) and Giuseppe Sannino (Watford) to the award.
It’s the second Manager of the Month gong Rosler has scooped this term. During his time at Brentford, he was named top League One manager for November, picking up his award on December 6 – just 24 hours before he took over at Wigan!
Rosler will be hoping to avoid the infamous Manager of the Month ‘curse’ ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final tie at Manchester City.
