The strides taken by Real Betis under Pepe Mel (Madrid, 28/02/1963) in April have been recognised by los verdiblancos’ boss being named as the winner of the BBVA Award for 'Liga Adelante Coach of the Month for April', an accolade chosen by the LFP.es website and presented by BBVA, the competition’s main sponsor.
Four wins from four: that's Mel's record in April, one that has seen his team consolidate their grip on top spot in the Liga Adelante. At. Osasuna (3-0), FC Barcelona B (1-2), Real Zaragoza (4-0), and Deportivo Alavés (1-2) were the victims of a Betis outfit on course for automatic promotion to the Liga BBVA.
What’s more, the coach's good work from the dugout has brought Betis a level of defensive solidity that is reflected in their goals tally in the most recent month of the league campaign. The Andalusians conceded just twice, while at the other end they scored 11 as they sealed a perfect 30 days.© LaLiga - Year 2015
