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 LaLiga.es 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.© LaLiga - Year 2016
