Wolves boss Bruno Lage has been named the Premier League Manager of the Month for January 2022.

The Portuguese tactician arrived at Molineux in the summer as the successor to Nuno Espirito Santo and has done a great job in the West Midlands thus far.

After winning all three of their Premier League games in January, Lage has won his first Manager of the Month award on these shores.

Wolves began the month with a famous 1-0 win at Manchester United courtesy of a late Joao Moutinho goal. They then rounded off January with victories at home to Southampton and away at Brentford.

Lage's side ended January in eighth place, just four points behind Man Utd in fourth and having played fewer games on five of the seven sides ahead of them in the table.

They've also moved four points clear of Brighton in ninth as Lage aims to lead Wolves back into Europe.
