🎖️ Jesse Lingard, Bruce win Premier League Month awards for April 

Newcastle United coach Steve Bruce has been named the Premier League Coach of the Month for April. 

West Ham United's forward Jesse Lingard, who is on loan from Manchester United has also been named the Premier League player of the month. 

Lingard netted four goals for the Hammers last month, taking his tally to nine this season since his move to the north London side at the start of February. The England international's solo strike against Wolves also saw him win the Goal of the Month.

Meanwhile, Bruce secured two wins and two draws from Newcastle's four matches, easing fears of being axed from the top flight. 

Amid criticism he has faced from fans, Bruce has vowed to remain as the Magpies coach next season. 

"I'm a football manager. It's what I do and I'm not ready to retire yet, so you have to dust yourself down, have a thick skin at times," he said.

"As I said, I'm nowhere near ready to retire just yet, so I'll crack on to the best of my ability."
