Quique Setien named Liga BBVA Manager of the Month for March

The Las Palmas coach has been recognised for his team's exploits in a month in which they notched up three wins and a creditable defeat.

Quique Setien has been chosen as the Liga BBVA Manager of the Month for March after guiding UD Las Palmas to a spell of fine form and results. This accolade is awarded by BBVA, the competition's main sponsor, and voted for by the writers.

By collecting nine points – courtesy of three wins and a solitary loss – over the course of the third month of the year, the Canary Islanders have leapt up the table and put a cushion between themselves and the relegation places. Setien has reinvigorated his team's confidence and established a clear, enterprising style of play.

Furthermore, in all three of their victories in March – against Getafe CF, Villarreal CF and Real Sociedad –  Las Palmas kept a clean sheet and looked highly solid and assured defensively. Even when falling to defeat at home to Real Madrid, Setien's side acquitted themselves impressively and were only denied a point in the dying minutes.
