Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno has secured a seventh place finish for the promoted outfit, who have impressed this season, particularly with their form against the top sides. Meanwhile, Bernardo has been one of the most lauded players in a Manchester City team that has defended their title with another huge points total.

Nuno takes his place on the exclusive 4-man shortlist alongside City manager Pep Guardiola, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino of Tottenham Hotspur.

Nuno’s cause has been aided by the help of his vast contingent of Portuguese players: goalkeeper Rui Patrício; defender Rúben Vinagre; midfielders Rúben Neves and João Moutinho; forwards Diogo Jota, Ivan Cavaleiro and Hélder Costa.
