Sir Alex Ferguson has won the LMA Manager of the Year award after leading Manchester United to a 10th Premier League title in the last 16 years and next week's Champions League final.

The Scot's award was announced at the Barclays-sponsored LMA annual awards dinner in Nottingham on Monday evening.

The award is voted for by the entire LMA membership and takes into consideration the performance of all managers during the season, based upon all the resources available to them.

It completes a double for Ferguson, who also won the Premier League award.

All the awards were presented by England head coach and LMA president Fabio Capello.

Ferguson has won the main award once before, in 1999, when he took United to a Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup treble.

He succeeds Reading boss Steve Coppell, who won the award in both of the previous two seasons.

Ferguson said: "It is a tremendous honour that my fellow managers and LMA members should deem me worthy of this award. I am very proud to receive it."

The winner of the Coca-Cola Championship manager of the year award was West Brom boss Tony Mowbray after steering Albion to the title and promotion.

Swansea manager Roberto Martinez won the League One award, and Graham Turner lifted the League Two award after taking Hereford to automatic promotion in their first season back in the Football League.

LMA chairman Howard Wilkinson said: "The awards recognise the achievements of the managers across the four top leagues in England.

"Recognition by your peers is an incredible privilege and this year's winners should be proud of their achievements.

"The LMA would like to congratulate all the managers for playing such an integral role in another fantastic season."

It is interesting to note that Steve Coppell had won it the previous two seasons, but his fellow managers have recognized this season that money is just one factor in the equation of building a successful team and to maintain that success. CONGRATULATIONS Sir Alex Ferguson!

All his signings have been a hit...amazing feat of spending 50m and not having a single flop so hats off to Fergie! Congrats and keep up the good work and please never retire lol
Way to go Fergie! he deserves it. This was probably the toughest season ever and we were trailing ARSEnal for a long time, but it was Fergie who lead his team past the finishing for the tenth time!;)

He deserves it, no question.

He says, as an experienced Premiership challenger, that winning the Premiership is the easier thing. Keeping it is the hardest. So, we came out on top in the hardest season.

Anyone know who else was in with a shout?
