Presenting the award to Howe, 33, at Tuesday's ceremony, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, last year's overall winner, said: "He's done a fine job, a remarkable job, and done it with style and humility."

Mourinho, who was also named the Premier League's Manager of the Season, was not present as he was attending Chelsea's own awards ceremony.
