Jose Antonio Duran named Liga Adelante Manager of the Month for March

The CD Lugo coach picks up the award after his team's almost-perfect month in which they recorded three wins and a draw.

Jose Antonio Duran's arrival in the CD Lugo dugout in late February generated a real reversal in fortune for a Galician side that has provided supporters with several joyous moments since the managerial change. The team's solid performances earned them three wins and a draw in March.

Lugo currently sit in eighth in the table on 46 points, just one place off the playoff positions for a coveted Liga BBVA spot in stark contrast to the outlook when Jose Antonio Duran took over the reins. During his first match in charge, Lugo were beaten 3-1 by R.Zaragoza, but have not tasted defeat since that day.

Jose Antonio Duran's arrival at the helm of the Galician outfit provided a morale boost to the entire squad after Luis Milla's resignation. Lugo's recent wins have been all the more impressive considering they have come against teams battling it out for promotion. They defeated Osasuna on home turf, returned from Cordoba with all three points and picked up a respectable draw against D.Alaves at Mendizorroza. This is a rejuvenated Lugo side that is aiming high.
