Prem bosses honour Swans' duo

Swansea's success has been recognised by Premier League managers who have voted Michael Laudrup the coach of the year and Michu the signing of the season respectively.

Laudrup has guided Swansea into the top half of the Premier League and has won the Carling Cup, the first major trophy of City's 100-year history while Michu, who scored the second goal in their 5-0 final win over Bradford, has struck 19 times since his £2 million arrival from Rayo Vallecano.

And almost half of his peers voted for Laudrup in a survey organised by the League Managers Association, with 46% naming him as the outstanding coach of the year.

Laudrup, who has earned plaudits for his progressive style of play, recently signed a contract extension to keep him at Swansea until 2015 but, when the season started, they were among the relegation favourites.

The former Liverpool and Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier said: "At the beginning of the season many wondered whether Swansea would be able to maintain their impressive start to Barclays Premier League life, but Michael Laudrup has come in, managed to sustain their Premier League progress and recently won the League Cup."

Michu defeated Robin van Persie to be named the managers' pick as the signing of the season, securing 47% of votes to the Manchester United forward's 35%. Santi Cazorla, Dimitar Berbatov and Steven Nzonzi were tied for third place.

And Houllier added: "Michael has probably made the shrewdest signing of the season in Michu and deserves the praise from his peers."

Liverpool's teenage winger Raheem Sterling was the runaway winner in the poll to find the best young player in the division, securing 52% of votes. Southampton's Adam Lallana was second with Chelsea's Brazil international Oscar third.
