Steve Bruce has been named the Barclays Manager of the Month for April 2021.
Newcastle United's head coach wins the prize for the first time, 19 years and 465 matches into his Premier League managerial career, after last month's four-match unbeaten run helped his side to ultimately secure safety.
"I've been going a long time to get one!" Bruce said. "A big thank you to the staff behind me, who've worked tirelessly, and of course more importantly the players, who have responded to the challenge and managed to get me the award."
"I suppose the last five minutes against Liverpool sort of summed us up really, where we had the disappointment of getting a goal disallowed," Bruce added.
"And then we even came back for more in the last minute, so showing that little bit of spirit."
