Jan Vertonghen and David Moyes Named Player and Manager of Month for March

david moyes Jan Vertonghen and David Moyes Named Player and Manager of Month for March

David Moyes and Jan Vertonghen have been named Manager and Player of the Month for March by the Barclays Premier League.

After managers and players are awarded the honors, they often experience a dip in form. Previous winners include managers Martin O’Neill and Brian McDermott, while footballers Steven Fletcher, Marouane Fellaini and Adam Le Fondre have picked up the players award.

However, Everton faces Tottenham Hotspur this Sunday, so there’s a near guarantee that both of them won’t face a dip in form. Perhaps only one of them will instead.

Regardless, congratulations to both Moyes and Vertonghen for the achievement.

      You have to factor in the competition, players available and squad strength. That’s why managers in the bottom half win the award as well.

      Everton have been very consistent which is why they are in the thick of things for battle of 4th and 5th.
