Manager's reaction after winning monthly award
Neal Ardley paid tribute to the AFC Wimbledon squad and his coaching staff after his Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month award.
As we announced early this morning, Neal earned the monthly award for April after leading Wimbledon into the play-offs, but he was quick to salute the contribution of others.
“The manager gets an accolade, but to be perfectly honest with you it is saying that you are team of the month,” said Neal. “That is the players, staff, and everyone who puts the effort into it. When we started the month there were eight teams who could get that spot in the play-offs and we slowly but surely ground it down to one.
“By the end of the month it was just us. That is a huge achievement under pressure. We handled it better than anyone else to get there. That’s ‘well done’ to the players and I accept the award on behalf of all of us.”
