Carlo Ancelotti named Liga BBVA coach of the month for April

The Real Madrid boss piloted his team to six league wins out of six, with a goals tally of 24 for and just four against.

After ending March four points behind Liga BBVA leaders FC Barcelona, Real Madrid finished April just two off los azulgranas after a run of six straight wins. And the sequence of results sees Carlo Ancelotti (Italy, 10/06/1959) scoop the BBVA Award for ‘Liga BBVA Coach of the Month for April’, an accolade chosen by the website and presented by BBVA, the league’s main sponsor.

April began with a huge 9-1 victory over Granada CF, followed by triumphs against Rayo Vallecano (0-2), SD Eibar (3-0), Málaga CF (3-1), RC Celta (2-4) and UD Almería (3-0). The streak, which includes a goals record of 24 for and four against, earned Ancelotti’s Madrid 18 points to stay in the race for the Liga BBVA title.
