Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp was rewarded for three wins from three games in September by being named the Barclays Manager of the Month for the seventh time in his career.
Spurs began the month with an impressive 2-0 victory away to a Wolverhampton Wanderers side that had enjoyed a strong start to the 2011/12 Barclays Premier League season. A debut goal from Emmanuel Adebayor and another from Jermain Defoe sealed the points for Spurs.
Redknapp’s side then followed up with a stunning 4-0 win over high-flying Liverpool at White Hart Lane. Midfielder Luka Modric began the scoring in the first half, with Defoe and Adebayor (2) on target for the second match in a row, in a result that lifted Spurs into the top half of the Barclays Premier League table.
A trip to Wigan towards the end of the month produced a second away win for Harry Redknapp’s men, and ensured a 100% record for September. First-half goals from Rafael van der Vaart and Gareth Bale were enough to see off the Latics, as Spurs ran out 2-1 winners.
The decision was made by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football’s governing bodies, the media and fans.
