In the Premier League, the FA Premier League Manager of the Year Award (variously referred to as the FA Carling Premiership Manager of the Year award, Barclaycard Premiership Manager of the Year award and currently Barclays Premier League Manager of the Year award for sponsorship reasons) is an annual award given to a manager who is recognised for their overall contribution to the achievements of a specific team. The award has been given out since Carling became sponsors of the Premier League in the 1993–94 season.

George Burley remains the only manager who did not win the Premier League title during the season to pick up the award. As manager of Ipswich Town he guided the club to fifth place in the table in the 2000–01 season, sealing European football in the form qualification for the UEFA Cup just one year after promotion from the Football League First Division. Despite his success he was sacked by the club only a year later following relegation and a poor start to the 2002–03 season in the Football League.

Alex Ferguson, the manager of Manchester United since 1986, has won the award more times than all the other winning managers combined. He has won the award on nine occasions since the formation of the Premier League having led Manchester United to the top of the Premier League eleven times. Kenny Dalglish, Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho are the only other managers to have won the award for their title-winning campaigns in charge of Blackburn Roversmarker, Arsenal and Chelsea respectively.
