Coventry City boss Mark Robins has been named the LMA League One Manager of the Year for the 2019/20 season.
Last season was one like no other, with the global pandemic causing a halt in proceedings and the postponement of fixtures seeing the League One season curtailed and ending via a points-per-game system.
The Sky Blues finished the season as champions and thus gained promotion to the Championship, with Robins guiding them to 18 wins and 13 draws in 34 games.
With the 2019/20 English season now done and dusted (aside from the Championship play-offs) after the Premier League came to a close at the weekend, the League Managers Association have announced the winners of various awards.
Robins is joined by a number of prestigious names on the winners’ podium including Jurgen Klopp, who guided Liverpool to their first Premier League title, and Marcelo Bielsa, who helped Leeds United seal promotion back to England’s top flight after a 16-year exile.
Coventry’s preparations for their 2020/21 Championship campaign are already in full swing, having faced Scottish Premiership side Rangers at the weekend in a friendly which ended 2-0 to Steven Gerrard’s side.
This is a superb accolade for Robins and one that is thoroughly deserved after a magnificent season in charge of Coventry.
He has been excellent during his time in charge of the Sky Blues and fans should duly feel very confident heading into next season, even with the team operating in a higher division.
How well do you think Coventry will do in the Championship next season? Let us know via the comments section below…
