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 LFP.es 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.
