Awards double for Reds

Published Add your comment

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez and captain Steven Gerrard have been named the Barclays Premier League manager and player of the month for March.

The Reds enjoyed an outstanding month as they reignited their Premier League title challenge with emphatic wins over champions Manchester United and Aston Villa.

Liverpool also beat Sunderland to collect maximum points from March and move into April a point behind leaders United.

Gerrard, who netted in the 4-1 rout of United and fired a hat-trick in the 5-0 demolition of Villa, has now won the player's prize an unprecedented five times.

It is also Benitez's fifth such award and his second this season having last been recognised in October.
