NIGEL Clough says that making the shortlist for the LMA Manager of the Year Award was testament to the achievements made by the Brewers last season.
Albion were the bookies favourites to be relegated from the Championship but defied the odds and survived with a game to spare.
Last night the League Managers Association (LMA) recognised that by putting the Brewers boss on the shortlist for its Manager of the Year award.
Clough said: “It’s not about me - I think it shows what a remarkable season it was for Burton Albion and is recognition for the scale of the achievement by everyone at the club in keeping Burton Albion in the Championship.”
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte won the award following the club’s Premier League title with Brighton's Chris Hughton and Sheffield United’s Chris Wilder, nominated following their promotion campaigns and Burnley's Sean Dyche and Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino also on the short list.
Hughton was named Championship Manager of the Year as well.
