LONDON: Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was on Friday named the English Premier League (EPL) Manager of the Season after his side won the league and Capital One Cup.

Earlier in May, the Portuguese coach led Chelsea to win the team's first EPL title since 2010, and beat Tottenham Hotspur in the Capital One Cup final last March, reports Efe.

Mourinho was selected over his fellow nominees, Southampton coach Ronald Koeman, Swansea's Garry Monk, Nigel Pearson of Leicester City and Arsene Wenger from Arsenal.

The league's best coach won the award despite never having won the Manger of the Month award at any time during this season.

Yet this is the third time Mourinho has been awarded the title, taking it also in the 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 seasons.

On the other hand, Chelsea's Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard has been crowned EPL player of the season, coming ahead of his Spanish teammate Cesc Fabregas, Manchester United's Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea, Manchester City's Argentine striker Sergio Aguero and Arsenal's Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez.

Hazard was earlier voted the 2015 player of the year by the Football Writers' Association, to honour his achievements in winning the EPL and Capital One Cup titles with his team during the season.
