Newcastle United's Alan Pardew has been named the Premier League manager of the season, becoming the first Magpies boss to win the award.
Pardew has taken Newcastle to the verge of Champions League qualification, as they cannot finish lower than fifth, meaning they will end the campaign ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool and target an automatic Champions League spot on Sunday.
The 50-year-old took over in December 2010 following the departure of Chris Hughton, when the team was in mid-table in the Premier League having been newly promoted from the Championship.
Since arriving at the club his signings have made a massive impact at the Sports Direct Stadium, with both Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse, proving influential during the clubs positive campaign.
Both Pardew and Newcastle have had an incredible season after it appeared the club would be fighting relegation, having worked wonders Pardew deserves the accolade.
